Free Eggs

Would you like a local farmer all-your-own?

One customer has asked me if I would consider being host farmer for their family, supplying everything we produce for a flat fee plus contribution of nominal hours on farmhelp. If you are interested in principle, let me know. It will allow me to plan the onfarm production and workforce for the coming year. You get me to grow what you want, both fresh and storage. The idea is to commit to a local farm for the whole year for most of your vegetables, meats and eggs.

Surf to the online store here to place your order. Store pick up Thurs 4 to 6 or by arrangement.

Healthy eating,
Ian, Cami and Lauren
