The Egg Business

Well, I am happy to report the local egg business is going well, both the self serve fridge and a regular customer base. For that I am thankful. However, this is the time of year (due to the reduced amount of sunlight due to daylight savings time) egg production has decreased. This is a natural cycle for laying hens. The good news is the Jersey Giants have begun to lay eggs. It will take a few weeks for the eggs to each "adult" size. Once the production gets going with these girls, we anticipate about 7 to 8 dozen eggs to be laid a day! So while now egg availablity is a little low, it will be picking up really soon! So hang in there, it will be worth the wait!

We have a new item for sale at the self serve fridge for a short time only: persimmons from our tree. These are the large tear drop shaped variety, not the small, short, squat type. The are a great deal at 2 for $1.00.

Thanks again to all of you for your business. Don't forget, we offer free delivery for regular customers in Glenn County. Our next post will contain more updates on the Jersey Giant's egg production and some holiday receipes.
