Different Shades of Eggs

Farm Fresh Eggs


What came first, the chicken or the egg?
 

WHAT IS THE PECK & PICK?

The Peck & Pick is a Hobby Farmstand, running on the honor system! We aren’t full-time farmers, but our love of growing has grown!

We’re homesteaders with the goal of reaching a monetary threshold that will allow for us to have an agricultural designation. For now, our production frustratingly coming in waves of feast and famine!

We dream of our farm and the Peck & Pick Farmstand being our full-time bread and butter, but in this harsh economy, we’re still working our full-time gigs! We hope to embrace the honesty of strangers and the generosity of our friends and neighbors with this honor system Farmstand! Some things will have a set price, but others will be “take what you need; leave what you can”. Thank you for sharing our hobby and dreams with us!

Just for fun...OUR FAVORITE HENS

Remember the early days of social media where you were forced to savagely choose your top 8 friends? With over 30 hens, we've decided to feature our top favorite hens! Why? Because chickens can't read so we're not worried about them finding out!

CARAMEL

PRAIRIE BLUEBELL EGGER
BORN APRIL 2024
Charming and kind demeanor
Sings sweetly like a songbird.
Got rejected from her flock because she stubbed her toe.
Almost pecked to death twice.

Tame and lives in cage on the porch as our family pet until we can re-integrate her!
