Scroll down to see what we have for you currently!
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 with 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 airtight 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 70 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.
Organic, Non-GMO, Heirloom Popcorn ~ $8/bag
This organically grown and hand harvested heirloom popping corn is absolutely delicious. The kernels pop a smaller "puff" than you may be used too, but the nutty flavor is exquisite.
Instructions are included on the back of the bag, which is resealable and compostable when you finish! All you'll need to pop this corn at home is coconut oil and a pot with a lid.
This popcorn is best enjoyed with grass-fed butter and lots of sea salt.
Handmade Wooden Christmas Ornaments ~ 2 for $15
These little tree ornaments are carved from solid wood and hand finished. Natural twine is used as the hanging attachment.
The ornaments measure 4” tall by 3.25” wide approximately.
Since each ornament is handmade, small imperfections and variations in the wood will occur from piece to piece.
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.
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.
Artisanal Handmade Soap ~ $5/bar
Artisanal, small batch soaps and suds from Handmade by Cecilia. 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: Rustic Woods, Raspberry Jam, Pumpkin Patch
Organic Acorn Squash ~ 2/$5
Buttery acorn squash harvested right from our three sisters garden. We love our acorn squash roasted in oven with butter, cinnamon, and maple syrup. Here's how we do it:
1. Slice acorns in half lengthwise and scoop out the seeds.
2. In each half place 1 tbsp butter, 1 tbsp maple syrup, and a sprinkle of cinnamon.
3. Place face up on a cookie sheet or stoneware pan and roast in the oven at 375 degrees F for 45 minutes.
Organic Sugar Pie Pumpkins ~ $5
These fall beauties are perfect for pumpkin bread, pumpkin pie, pumpkin butter, and pumpkin pudding! Here's how to prepare them:
1. Remove the stem.
2. Cut the pumpkin in half and scoop out the seeds (save them for roasting!).
3. Place face down on a cookie sheet topped with parchment paper so the pumpkin doesn't stick.
4. Bake at at 375 degrees F for 45 minutes. The outer flesh should peel away from the meat of the pumpkin easily.
5. Remove the flesh and puree the pumpkin meat with an immersion blender or mash with a potato masher.
6. Use in any of your favorite pumpkin recipes!
