At Asgard Farm, our heritage laying hens free range on chemical free pasture where they forage for insects and grass seeds as nature intended. This is in addition to fresh air, green grass, clean water and sunshine that only free range hens can have. Our hens are never manipulated with artificial light to induce off season laying and are allowed to molt and produce as nature intended.
Starting in spring of 2018 we will also have duck eggs available from our small flock of runner ducks.

Our hens stay in production on farm for approximately two seasons, after which their efficiency decreases. Two year old laying hens are generally available for sale in the fall and make great additions to small household flocks or barnyards. Contact us for availability.
