Local Darby Farms Eggs- Loved, Pastured

$5.99

1 Dozen

Darby Farm maintains natural pastures – pastures that are never treated with herbicides, pesticides or artificial fertilizers – and regularly rotate them to keep them fresh and healthy. Of course, the natural fertilizer the ladies leave behind certainly helps!

The girls are free to roam and forage as much as they like – we open the barn doors in the morning, and out they all go! We make sure there’s plenty of shade out on the pastures, and a ready supply of both clean, fresh water and our carefully formulated supplemental feed, but they’re free to come and go from the barn, and free to eat what they want, all day long.

 

 

Darby Farm

In 2007, Jeni and Daniel Dover started Darby Farms to cure Daniel’s body after a lifetime of eating dead food. Utilizing  three acres of pasture owned by his wife's family, they resolved to feed themselves, family, friends and neighbors with nutrient-dense food. First starting with a market garden, moving next to laying hens and then on to meat chickens on those three acres, Daniel and Jeni learned the thrill and excitement of growing your own food and its tribulations.

In 2017, it was time to make the leap of buying a farm. Jeni and Daniel decided on 80 acres with a house in Union Mills, NC. Now as owners of the land they farm the potential for innovation has increased.

In late 2017, elderberry, an age old wellness tradition that Jeni had made since 2011, came into the mainstream of America. The opportunity then arose for them to plant, grow, harvest  and produce Elderberry Syrup locally. Darby Farms Elderberry Syrup is now widely distributed throughout America. This inspired Jeni and Daniel to diversify the farm further to plant medicinal and food producing plants and trees in an integrated system with animals called silvopasture. The silvopasture technique is thousands of years old and merged with modern day technologies of electric fencing, water management and plant selection just might be the key to climate change mitigation. More healing products will be offered in the coming months.

For 2020, Darby Farms plans to raise 3000 laying hens, 200 laying ducks, 200 turkey, 50 pigs, 20 head of sheep, a few head of cattle and plant more elder plants, black walnut, black locust, blueberry, chestnut and more.
