Week of October 28th

We have a few dozen small chicken eggs in stock. When a chicken first starts laying eggs they are quite a bit smaller than a normal size egg. It takes about 2-3 months for the chicken to start laying normal size eggs depending on the breed. A lot of our chickens are just starting to lay so these eggs will be available moving forward. We are back up to 200+ chickens, and with a secure free range atmosphere, these hens are living the high life.
Delicious local granola and cookies are being offered the first week of each month. We are collecting orders today through next week to lock down your supply for the month.
Also make sure to check out all the delicious bread Wendy at Deux Bakery has to offer. I’ve been hooked on their Whole Wheat Sourdough, but I’ve yet to try a loaf I don’t love. Not to mention their scones and muffins. They are up at 2am baking this stuff fresh for us and you can tell when you taste it. If your loaf isn’t sliced it’s because it was too hot out of the oven to do so. You can visit the bakery on Reddick St. or enjoy their baked goods at Scarlett Begonia too.

Week of October 7th

To all our current and future egg subscribers. You may notice your eggs getting darker orange, richer tasting and just all around more delicious. Our chickens, who are now co-mingling with our turkeys, are running through green pastures and eating all sorts of bugs just like they should be. If you are on our waiting list, hang tight, we will get you involved soon. Depending on how cold the winter gets up here in Buellton we expect to start adding on dozens within the next few months here.
Check out our new website at www.somethinggoodorganics.com. Same content, but hopefully a little easier to read. We would LOVE to hear your feedback and encourage you to send your testimonials our way so we can share the good news with the community.
We just planted our first Pixie and Satsuma Tangerine trees. Looking forward to some delicious little cuties in a few years. None of that pithy, watery stuff I’ve heard about in the store. We picked some of our favorite citrus varieties than can be enjoyed by the whole family.
We hope you enjoy the bounty from the farm this week. A lot of great, hardworking guys are making this happen as we speak.
