Mighty Mini Farm Our little farm raises all natural, free range, pasture raised poultry and eggs.

Spent my Saturday at the chicken swap and having great conversation and planning for next summer's "farming".

We have decided after four years of NOT profit farming that we are going to change over to substinence farming. That means instead of selling to the public we will be focused on raising food for our family.

We have more than we need we will sell anything extra.

I WILL still raise meat turkey and chickens for the public but these will be done on a pre-order basis.

Egss will still be available depending on chicken cooperation. We did downsize the flock for winter as they are aging out. We will raise a new flock next spring from the early eggs from the girls.

That being said we will also have barred rock chicks available for purchase in the spring. These will be straight run. And chicks will be available once a month March through May.

The hens and ducks are in full lay!

Fresh duck eggs and chicken eggs are available for purchase.

Duck eggs are fantastic for baking especially with gluten free flours.

Nothing beats a farm fresh egg at the breakfast table.

Duck eggs are $5 a dozen. They come cleaned and MUST be refrigerated.

Chicken eggs are $3 a dozen and are counter (room temp) safe for up to 3 weeks.

We have duck and chicken eggs available by the dozen.

Duck eggs are in limited supply so preorder is advised.

Duck eggs are $5.00 a dozen
Xhicken eggs are $3.00 a dozen.

We are considering doing pre-orders for whole processed chickens.

Our meat birds are raised inside for several weeks then on limited pasture until processing at about 10 weeks.

On average these will weigh 3-6 pounds after processing. Cost will be $3.75 a pound for whole birds with necks and giblets included.

There would be a $5 deposit per bird. There would be 2 delivery dates available. (Mid July and Mid Sept).

I am wondering if there would be interest in a program like this.

We could also offer Jumbo Roasting chickens that would be $4.25 a pound. These birds are raised the same way, they are just kept longer before processing to give them a longer time to grow. These birds can weigh in excess of 8 pounds.

It's been a busy week on the farm. We had ducklings hatching on Tuesday and this morning we had babies bunnies born!

The toddler girls are finally big enough to join the big girls, and are getting their first taste of the outdoors.

Our egg laying hens have ramped up to full production and we are getting 2 dozen eggs a day.

The toddlers should start laying the begining of July. By August we'll be getting roughly 5 dozen eggs a day.

When the "itty bitty" girls start laying in August we'll be at full capacity and will be getting over 7 dozen eggs a day!

Pastry Chefs Secret Ingredient — Duck Eggs | Edible Paradise

Do you require a gluten free diet? Do you enjoy baked goods, but they turn out flat with regular store bought eggs.

Try duck eggs for lighter, moister gluten free baked goods.

We ran our own trial and asked random people who require gluten free products to try duck eggs for baking.

It was a grand success with a variety of baked goods from cookies and cakes to donuts.

At 6 weeks old the toddlers have all of their feathers. And today they graduated to the bigger Coop located in the barn. They'll get used to the sounds of the big girls, and our lovely Minnesota weather. They'll be in this coop for 4 to 6 weeks before they join the big girls.

These girls should start laying eggs in about 10 more weeks

They bring our current laying flock total up to 75.

25 new babies arrive today. They should start laying mid-october. And will allow us to continue to offer quite a variety of coloredof colored eggs.

The duck flock has grown! I purchased 5 ducklings yesterday to help expand the flock , and keep some genetic diversity so we have healthy babies and healthy egg layers. So far we have ducklings from MN and Iowa, and in 2 weeks we will be adding 3 more little duck girls from MO.

We have ducklings in the process of hatching as we speak, and one more planned incubation. Our duck moms have been hard at work and we will be setting 30 more duck eggs early next week.

Going into wi ter we hope to have a laying DUCK flock of 15 hens and 4 drakes.

DUCK eggs are great for individuals who don't or can't eat gluten. Duck eggs bind better to gluten free flours and make a moister fluffier baked good.

The new chick brooder and watering system is coming together one level at a time. As soon as it warms up, these girls will be introduced to the great outdoors. By mid summer they will be combined with the "big girls" flock and move into the new and improved giant chicken coop coming later this spring.

Please bear with us. We are working hard to get our farm page up and running.

Our little farm is currently buried by a few inches of snow, and whats not covered with snow is a muddy mess from the warm-up topped with more snow.

We will be working hard to get pictures of our laying flock posted.
