Eggs Eggs Everywhere!

Ever wonder how the concept of Easter Eggs came about? Seems almost as random as the fact that they get laid by bunnies! Really.

Do the words abundance and fertility and Spring give you a hint?

As many of our families know, during the darker winter months – December and January – we run short on eggs. That is simply because the hens don’t lay as many when it is not sunny. The same impulse as causes slowed growth in plants. So now when the sun begins to shine closer to 12 hours a day – our hens really start to produce.

Where Good Food Comes From

A Poem by Susan Reid, 2017

I have felt the warm breath of cows, carried the weight of hay and water, Smelled the sweetness of grain and manure.

I have known the oily kinked wool of sheep beneath my hands. and have held eggs, still-warm, stuck with bits of feather and guano.

I have watched lambs, kids and calves come bloody and hard into the world, watched them wobble and suck.

I have raised chicks from bits of fluff fed and watered them, taken their lives and feathers away and, with knife and ice water, prepared them for the freezer.
