Organic Pastured Eggs ~ $5/dozen
Our flocks are given access to the open air, allowing them the freedom to scratch for bugs and forage for wild seeds. We provide them a certified Midwest-grown organic chicken feed to eat as they please.
Don't confuse "pastured" with "pasteurized." All of our eggs are fresh, laid within a day or two before they are in the egg carton. All of our eggs are washed so you don't have to, because of this they must be refrigerated. Eggs are naturally covered by an air tight coating when they exit the hen, but that is removed when we wash our eggs. Our eggs will keep for five weeks in the fridge.
We raise Wyandottes, Australorps, and Leghorns on our farm. Working with heritage breeds not only preserves genetic diversity in American livestock, but they are hardy as all get out!
Currently, there are 40 chickens laying for us everyday. Our girls are put to work on our land, creating compost and fertilizing our garden. It's a beautiful thing to see happy hens at work.
Be sure to save your egg cartons when purchasing our eggs so you can return them the next time you're back.
Flower, Herb, and Vegetable Seeds ~ $2/pack
If you dream of starting a windowsill herb garden or want to bring more color to your yard, we have lots of seeds for you here at the farm stand! These varieties were hand harvested from our land last growing season.
Monster Marigold: We're talking humongous marigold plants. These are more like marigold bushes! If you love splashes of orange and yellow, these are a beautiful variety. Plant mid-May, 1/4" deep, 6-10" apart.
Golden Sunflower: Big gorgeous sunflowers that yield lots of delicious seeds. Expect 5- 6 ft tall flowers. Plant mid-May, 1/2" deep, 6" apart.
Wildflower Mix: A generous mix of Calendula, Yarrow, Zinnias, and White Daisies. Your yard will be butterfly central with these blooms. Plant early-May. Scatter and pull a garden rake across the soil to incorporate.
Delicious Dill: So easy to grow you'd think it's a weed (just kidding we don't believe in weeds at Green Willow Homestead). This fragrant herb is perfect for pairing with fish, potato salads, and pickling. Plant mid-May, 1/4" deep, 3" apart.
King Tut Purple Pea: An edible climbing pea with gorgeous purple flowers. The pods are a deep violet color. Delicious as a snap pea or shell pea. Plant mid-April, 1" deep, 5" apart.
Maple Syrup ~ $15/jar
From the Silver Maples right on our farm! We have harvested over 80 gallons of sap this year and it's yielded us a hefty amount of maple syrup.
The maple syrup is sold in 16oz wide mouth glass jars. As far as grading goes you can consider it a Grade B, sweet with a robust maple flavor.
We boil down our maple sap without the use of any chemical surfactants. When sap is boiled it produces a foam, to break up the foam many sugar houses will use some sort of chemical product to break it up. Here at Green Willow Homestead we use organic grass-fed butter! So if you have a severe dairy allergy please do not consume our maple syrup.
Our favorite way to enjoy our maple syrup, besides on pancakes, is in an Old Fashioned. Just swap out simple syrup for maple syrup (you're welcome in advance).
Artisanal Handmade Soap ~ $5/bar
Artisanal, small batch soaps and suds from Three Kitties Soap Co. Cecilia has been making these bars of soap and other bath time goodies for her own family for years and she can’t wait to share them with yours!
Ingredients are organically sourced and include yummy things like coconut oil and olive oil. These soaps have a fantastic lather and wonderful smell.
Current scents: Apple Pie Crumble, Lavender Mimosa, Coffee Vanilla
Organically Grown Non-GMO Spaghetti Squash
We are swimming in organic non-GMO spaghetti squash. We just set out the last of our winter bounty at the farm stand so come get some. Prices are written on each squash and are dependent on size.
Our favorite way to enjoy spaghetti squash:
1. Pre-heat the oven to 375ºF
2. Slice it lengthwise.
3. Scoop out the seeds (and feed 'em to our chickens!).
4. Set the halves facedown on a cookie sheet.
5. Roast them for 45 minutes.
6. Fork the "noodles" out into a bowl.
7. Add 2 tbsp butter, 2 tbsp olive oil, and sea salt to taste.
