After recovering from the loss of most of our flock due to wandering dogs, our hens are now producing brown and green eggs at almost one dozen eggs daily. They are available for $3 a dozen.
In case you haven’t heard the latest and greatest news about using fresh eggs as hard boiled eggs, here it is. STEAM them. That’s right. Wash the eggs and put them in your steamer. After 20 minutes, plunge them straight into ICE WATER until they are barely warm to touch. Roll them on a surface with your hand to crack the shell and they should peel clean and easy.
Now you can use fresh eggs immediately without waiting weeks because of the difficulty in peeling them. Try it! You’ll never boil an egg again!!
We can supply you with your livestock and farm feeds now.
Sweet feed, cracked corn, laying mash, alpaca feed and more. Contact us to let us know what you need. 724-561-5238
Our order of alpaca Survivor Socks has just arrived.
We have Medium and Large back in stock and they will be available to purchase in The Yarn Barn this Saturday, Feb. 28. Don’t forget that our new hours are 1p – 7p.
While we humans are trying to wear as many layers of clothing as possible and still be able to flex our limbs, the alpacas are in their element. They have been romping in the snow and basking out in the sun when it makes an appearance.
Alpaca fiber has amazing insulative properties. If you were to put your bare hand into their fleece to make skin contact, you would be surprised to find how warm they are under all of that fuzz!
We have socks, hats and other items made from alpaca fiber that will help keep you warm in this harsh weather.
Stop by the toasty warm studio on Saturdays after 1pm until 7pm.
The studio will reopen this Saturday, Jan. 3 with new hours on Saturdays. We’re shifting from 10-4 to 1pm-7pm to accommodate those who need the extended hours.
This Saturday, Dec. 20, the studio will be open from 10a-1p then we will be closed until Jan. 3 to take a short break. On Jan. 3, the new studio hours will go into effect. Take tuned for that and other news.
