Increasing our egg supply by providing a larger and more sustainable coop to house more chickens.
Eggs are the beginning of our small, family farm business! We've always had extra to give away or to sell. Our customer base has grown dramatically in the past year and we often run short on eggs.
We sell farm fresh eggs from soy free, organic fed chickens. Currently, the chickens have a large fenced-in chicken run around their coop that protects them from predators but doesn't allow them to free range. In order to increase our egg supply we want to purchase a large, mobile coop and moveable electronet fencing. This will allow us to increase our flock and at the same time upgrade our eggs to pastured eggs. This would give our customers the best quality eggs available!
Allowing the chickens to forage on the grass in a pastured poultry system produces the highest quality eggs you can buy! Pastured eggs have more vitamin A, vitamin E, Beta Carotene, and Omega-3s and less cholesterol, and saturated fat then eggs from confined chickens.
Some of the rewards you will receive for your generous pledge:
Homemade jams and jellies
Whole organic fed chicken
Your pledge makes it possible for us to reach our goal of providing a higher quantity and quality of eggs for all the people who love them! Thank you !
Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
Risks: The only risk we can think of with this project is the possibility of predators attacking our flock. But a devastating attack is unlikely with the electric fencing and our 10 years of experience.
Challenges: The challenge that could come up is in keeping up with the egg rewards we may have to stagger the deliveries so the estimated delivery may be later.
