Part of the joy of raising animals is to be able to have farm fresh products such as eggs and milk. We hope to be able to soon offer goat milk products such as raw goats milk (for pet consumption), soap, and herbal products. It's always a work in progress here...a little gets done at a time.
Currently we have fresh farm uck eggs-our fowl is fed an assortment of foods including mostly organic grain, kitchen scraps, barley sprouts and what ever they can find for themselves!
Fresh Farm Eggs:
Duck eggs are $6.50 a dozen, $13.00 for two dozen (with carton exchange or $6.75 without a carton)
Poultry and sheep manure:
Could your garden or compost pile use a boost? How about treating it to some poultry/or sheep manure? Following is a table of NPK values for chicken and sheep manure:
Values of Animal Manures
N Nitrogen %
P Phosphorus %
Chicken/Duck manure: We have limited amount of chicken/duck manure available at $5.00 for a 5 gallon bucket full. We clean out the pens in Spring so much of it is already composted.
Sheep Manure: $5.00 for a feed bag full. Sheep manure is great for making a liquid manure tea.
Just place the droppings in a hessian sack or any porous container that you can place in a barrel of water. After a couple of weeks remove the sack and use the contents on the compost heap. The liquid feed can be applied to boost ailing plants in need of extra nitrogen.
