An Abundance of Eggs
We do not use lighting on the chickens to increase their production through the winter but have carefully selected many breeds that do continue to lay even when the daylight hours are shorter. For that reason, we have eggs year round. And since we do not have Saturday Market throughout the winter, we can still serve our regular restaurant customers and have extra eggs. That is great for the dogs who enjoy their scrambled eggs each day. I've taken to feeding Rudy, our ancient Great Pyrennes, twice and sometimes even three times a day while it is so cold. I offer to let him in the house but he prefers to be curled up in the sun against a hay bale. I figure the least I can do is cook for the old fellow.
