At Hanging Mountain Farms we raise pastured chickens and eggs and specialize in the Delaware Breed , a heritage breed that is on the ALBC critical list. We recently started a project raising another endangered breed, Dexter cattle. In season, we also have spring summer and fall vegetables. Our main focus however will be egg production. Our hens are not confined in a cage or pen. They produce a fresh egg that tastes better than a store bought egg. We finally have our new crop of chickens in production. We have fresh eggs available now! Ted and Carlene Perry
Delaware Chicken- This breed was founded in the state of Delaware from an original Barred Rock and New Hampshire cross. Delawares are a heavy breed that produce a nice brown egg. This breed is mostly white with black barring on the hackle and tail. Hanging Mountain Farms Delawares are raised in a pasture and allowed to forage all day.
We sell at the farm and and I have started selling at the Woodstock locally grown market (Woodstock.locallygrown.net).

We have been purchasing eggs from Hanging Mountain Farms for about 6 months. The quality and taste of the eggs has been superior, and the peace of mind that comes with knowing we are feeding our children fresh, free-range eggs from healthy chickens is priceless.... [more]
