Dogwood Ridge Farm

We are a small producer learning and growing our farming skills. Our flock is a mix of breeds including Rhode Island Reds, Barred Rocks, Americanas, and Australorps, and now .

Our hens have full access to pasture meaning they are grass fed and have access to wooded areas foraging for worms and bugs. We supplement their foraging with whole grains only--no corn, no soy. We are now fermenting their grain and have had positive results. The hens roost in hoop houses and are closed in for the night for their safety. In the morning, the houses are open and the hens are free to roam and forage.

The hoop houses are moved around the pasture preventing build up of our hens' droppings, exposing the droppings to sunlight and rain, and fertilizing our pasture. This process helps us prevent disease and parasites that can harm our hens.

Another hoop house is for laying eggs and feeding. We also have another outside area with nesting boxes. This keeps the hens' droppings away from their nesting area and gives us very clean eggs without washing.

I say our hens are happy because freedom is exhilarating. I believe that happy hens produce better eggs and are able to produce for more years of their life.

We currently sell our eggs at a local farmer's markets, but we welcome any inquiries about our eggs. As long as the hens lay, we will sell. Extreme cold and heat slows egg production.

Listing last updated on Feb 1, 2014

We feature eggs that are like no other. We feed all whole grains with only a supplement of Standlee brand pure Alfalfa pellets, buttermilk, kelp, and diatomaceous earth. During the spring, summer, and fall the hens main food source is from foraging in our pastures and woods.
