Syrup
By: Melanie Ricketts    (Apr 4, 2012)

Shag Bark Hickory Syrup. I had never heard of hickory syrup, but I guess you can make syrup out of almost anything. This syrup is lighter than maple syrup and has a bit of a smoky flavor to it. Delicious!

The people at Hickory Oak Farm are friendly and informative regarding the products that they sell. There is always an education if you want it when speaking with Ian @ Hickory Oak Farm.

Super friendly, well priced, good quality
By: Christopher South    (Mar 26, 2012)

They actually let me and my daughter go back and interact with the chickens and Ducks. It was great fun. I asked tons of questions about the feed and the way they are raised. Here is the verdict.

Very Good Quality for the price range ($3/dozen)!

Unless you're willing to drive up to Quaker Hill Farm, the perfect egg (in Michigan) will cost you about $5-$6 per dozen. I think Hickory Oak Farm is a great compromise. They have their chickens outside grazing as much as possible. I saw them. Very healthy looking, sociable and happy chickens. They only feed them about 10% grain. I always look for grain free chickens, but this is the best I've found for this price range.

Very good tasting eggs. Both chicken and duck eggs are good. The Duck eggs taste identical to chickens but have a meatier texture. Very hard shells.

They have the coolest Ducks, called Indian Runners. They don't fly and travel in packs which makes them hilarious to watch. I laughed hysterically as my 3 year old daughter chased them around the yard. No Joke... they look like waddling bowling pins!

Probably the best part was that I could go pick some up on a sunday at 3pm. They seem to be open ALL the time. Which is wonderful for those like myself who work a rotating shift at a factory.

I hope this review helped!

Quail Eggs-Yum
By: Jen Consid    (Feb 1, 2012)

Quail Eggs from the Hickory Oak Farm are Awesome! These tiny eggs are a treasure for a dinner party. Guests will be delighted when they see bite sized deviled eggs. I made them just like my regular egg reciepe, the difference is they are a good conversation starter AND they are better for you! Also great in a salad or on the go! Hickory Oak will do thier best to meet your needs too. A+ from me!

Roast Duckling
By: Jen Consid    (Oct 10, 2011)

I purchased a young duckling, plucked and processed cleanly. It was easy to prepare a simple roast duck recipe with such a clean bird. It was wonderfully moist and juicy. The duckling had more than enough meat for 2. Duckling is a lovely fall dish prepared with acorn squash and spring mix! 2 Forks Up!
