Learn more about our one of a kind humane breeding and hatching program as well as our commitment to giving back to our communities here!

We are open and continuing to fulfill orders for shipment and pickup through the Covid-19 crisis. 

 Once your order has been placed you will be able to select a date for shipping. If picking up from the farm you will also need to select a “shipping date”, instead of shipping we will know that date is the preferred week you would like to pickup the chicks. 

The minimum order for shipped chicks from February-June is 10 to guarantee live arrival. From June – October the minimum order for shipped chicks is 6. If that is more chicks then you were planning on ordering, we can pad your order with free male chicks to keep your ordered chicks warm and safe for their journey.

Shipping for chicks is express flat rate of $50 for up to 75 chicken chicks and or quail chicks. Farm pickups are always free. If wanting to place an order for 30 chicks and above send us an email for our wholesale pricing. Farm pickups are always free and there are no minimums

The shipping cost for quail eggs is $25 we can fit up to 5 dozen quail eggs per shipping box.

We are no longer offering fertile chicken eggs for shipment or pickup.

We ship orders out every Tuesday morning and offer farm pickups for locals everyday of the week by appointment. When selecting farm pickup you can consider the shipping date you select to be the pickup date.

We have a great FAQ page to answer any of your questions, we look forward to seeing you and helping your flocks grow in 2020!

The Beauty In-between

🌿The Beauty In-between🌿 . In a world obsessed with uniformity and perfection it is the “imperfection” that catches my eye.  🌿 The in-between sizes, the different colors and textures are all opportunities to create something new.
