Putney Farm

Putney Farm Free-range Eggs may now be found @Whole Foods @ the Woodruff Rd. exit in Greenville, SC, and online at http://www.upstatesc.locallygrown.net . Our farm is in rolling hills of the Friendship area of Honea Path, SC. Our heritage breed birds are humanely treated, never caged, kept warm, safe, and naturally raised. We do all phases of our operation by hand, including feeding, collecting eggs, washing, sorting, and packaging the eggs. In the daytime our hens and roosters range on pasture and wooded areas, free-choice, returning to the hen house to lay eggs and at liberty. As evening approaches, our hens return to roost in their building , and we close the doors, to keep them comfortable and safe from predators. Our eggs are fertile. . We use a deep- litter method of hen- housekeeping , in which we build up a deep layer of organic matter, such as leaves, and let the hens compost it all winter. This produces warmth in the winter. By spring, we have plenty of rich compost on our hen-house floor. Produce and herbs are available through our on-line farmer's market, Upstate SC Locally Grown We raise plants in gallon pots,Which we sell through the Downtown Greenville SC Saturday Market and through our on line market. We also use them in our garden design business. We use no chemicals on our farm. We use companion planting and natural plant-based repellents, when necessary. We love the earth and want to keep it, and us, well.

I want to thank all the farmers and volunteers who make Upstate Locally Grown possible. I have been a member less than a year and am grateful to be able to purchase fresh products from our local farmers at one location convenient to me.... [more]


We are what we eat ,and Donna's chickens produce fantastic eggs b/c they are allowed to eat the way God planned it. Very satisfied with the eggs!


This is not a traditional CSA don't be fooled after you pay a membership fee you still have to pay for products each week. This is more like an online convience store than a CSA.
