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.
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.
Organically-Grown Heirloom Hardneck Garlic | $5 / 1lb bag
Our organically-grown heirloom garlic has a delightfully smokey and mellow bite to its flavor that we have never experienced before compared to store-bought garlic.
Each 1lb bag includes both German Red hardneck garlic and Elephant garlic for you to try. The bulbs are massive and the cloves are extremely easy to peel.
We enjoy using our heirloom garlic blended into pasta and pizza sauce, sautéed into any savory dish, or roasted in the oven with olive oil and seal salt. Come and get yourself a bag before they are gone!
