Egg Production

Curling's Crest Farm produces an abundance of fresh brown eggs from organically raised free ranged chickens.  Our flock includes several brown egg laying varieties, including some heirloom lines.  At present, our layers include White, Barred, and Buff Rocks, Delawares, Rhode Island and New Hampshire Reds, Speckled Sussex, and Silver Laced Wyandottes, among others.  If you have never tasted eggs fresh from the farm, you have missed out on one of life's simple pleasures.  Our chickens are fed antibiotic free grain and corn-based feed, as well as allowed to forage and scratch for their choice of nature's foods.  While contained within a fenced area to protect them from predators (raccoons, stray dogs, hawks, etc.), our chickens are otherwise free to range in and out of their mobile house (which our daughter has aptly named "The Chicken Ark") and within their "yard" at will, unlike commercially raised chickens that typically spend their productive egg-laying life in a small metal cage.  In exchange for providing our chickens with a safe and healthy environment in which to live, we believe that they reward us with a tastier and healthier egg.

Chicken Ark

Our eggs are available for sale most weeks of the year, though due to the fact that we maintain our chickens in a more natural environment rather than in a commercial production facility, we do have some seasonal variations in availability based on the weather, molting stage, predator invasion, etc.  Our eggs can be purchased directly from our farm, with no middle man involved, meaning that you will receive the freshest eggs possible at the most reasonable price.  Most eggs purchased from our farm will be aged from hours to a few days from laying, making them weeks fresher than most eggs purchased in a grocery store.

Eggs can be picked up directly from the farm, or we typically deliver a supply for our "regulars" to central locations where they can be picked up in Walkertown and Kernersville, NC once or twice a week, and about every other week to New Bern, NC.  We would encourage you to order a dozen to see for yourself the difference in a farm fresh egg.  Once you appreciate the value of a fresher and tastier egg, you may continue to purchase our eggs on an "as needed" basis, pending availability.  Or should you wish to become a regular customer, you can be added to our schedule for regular delivery, at whatever quantity meets your needs--one dozen a week, 2 dozen a week, one dozen every other week, etc.
