About

Located in the beautiful and historic Hudson Valley, Fable is a farm  dedicated to sustainable agriculture. We believe that through  dedication, hard work, and modern technological advancements in  agriculture, we can provide the freshest produce all year  round without the use of harmful pesticides.

Over the past three years we have raised beautiful, free-range chickens on our farm and now we are looking to expand.  We have over 200 hens roaming our fields, foraging on greens, bugs, and even food scraps from our market. Many of our hens are heritage breeds which lay beautiful blue, green, and even purple’ish colored eggs.

Despite having 200 chickens, many of which lay every 26 hours, we still cannot keep their eggs in stock. We sell out almost every weekend which is why we need your help. We are looking to raise an additional 300 baby chicks but caring for them can be costly.

Please consider donating to our Kickstarter Campaign. If we can start raising baby chicks now these little ones will be laying gorgeous, healthy, colored eggs by summertime that you and your family can enjoy.

Risks and challenges

Raising baby chickens from day-old can be hard, especially in the winter. We will set up energy and temperature monitoring systems to provide the best level of care. Baby chickens need to start out living in 100 degree temperature, slowly lowered over the next several weeks.
