New Vendor!
Cedar Knoll Farm

We have always wanted to have a farm. We started out with 15 chickens in 2013 and now have just around 100! They have a few thousand feet outdoor run. We can't allow them to completely free range with so many fox around. So far the only predator we have had get in was a bob cat. We hope to one day have a full fledged farm. Cows, pigs and horses. We are starting small (kinda), and hoping to achieve the full on farm in five years or so.
We have Eggs!
