We are located on a fifth-generation farm near Mulkeytown in historic Franklin County, Illinois, approximately 17 miles Northeast of Carbondale. Using a combination of sustainable and organic methods, we raise eggs, produce, herbs and cut flowers. Our pasture-raised eggs are always available in Carbondale at Arnold's Market, and The Neighborhood Co-op, and in Benton at Kings Way Health Foods. Our premier product is Grass-Fed-Eggs.....Grass-Fed Eggs are eggs from grass-fed chickens: that is, happy outdoor chickens that have free range over an area rich in green growing plants. When you think of chickens, it's the kind of flock that you like to think about, and it's the kind of egg you want to eat. Of course our hens can't survive on grass alone, but they like grass, and eating it makes their eggs noticeably tastier and more nutritious. When you see pasture-raised hens like ours, you know that this is the way it's supposed to be. Nutrition, flavor, sustainability, & a bit of nostalgia -- grass-fed eggs from the Mulkeytown Fresh Farm have it all. You can check out the Nutrition Information links on our website at "eggs12.com". Just so you know, each and every animal on our farm is treated humanely, and is free to roam about. Our hens are in pastures with fencing around so they don't disappear and are not eaten by predators. All have ample room to roam, frolic and sunbathe. None of our hens are in barns or cages, none have been de-beaked or had their wings removed. Our hens have a fantastic life style. Give our eggs a try. You'll love 'em.

Thank goodness for this farm. As a college student, I was afraid I was going to have to settle for terrible food, but I found their eggs at the Co-Op! Finally, a farmer who understands that chickens aren't vegetarians! Nothing added, no crazy hormones, just chickens eating bugs and grass. What more could you ask for?
I had no idea that there was such a major difference in appearance and taste of local pasture-raised eggs and chain store eggs! These pasture-raised eggs are wonderful.... [more]

I have visited this farm twice in the last several months and what their website says is NO BULL. Their hens, or the girls as Becky calls them, are taken care of extremely well and they are almost like pets to the owners.... [more]
