I love that the red laying hens at Sunrise Farm in WRJ, VT have a large protected space in which to range freely. They can supplement their diet with seeds and bugs. They lay eggs in the morning and roost at night in a mobile chicken coop. As the coop is moved, the valuable nutrients from their manure are distributed around the farm. Their Non-GMO eggs are now available at the farm. (Their quality of life is so much better than the lives of most hens!)
Sunrise Farm still has a few CSA openings .
*Half a year of certified-organic veggies starting late April / early May

*Market-style choice of veggies each week, per usual

For those of you interested in half shares, you can either split a full share with a friend, alternating pickup weeks, or purchase a half share on your own.
