We are a small 10-acre farm located in Lexington. Before we moved to Oklahoma in late 2004, we were city dwellers from a suburb outside of Los Angeles, California. Country life has been a serious adjustment. We’ve learned to deal with snakes,’possums, skunks, coyotes, ice storms, frozen water pipes, no electricity, no flushing toilets, and no heat. I think we’ve done pretty good. Now we just roll with the punchs.
We bought our first chickens in the fall of ’07 just because they were so cute at Attwood’s and we had made a conscious decision to try and live off of our land as much as possible. We grew our own vegetables in the summer of ’08 and we learned how to can and freeze what we grew. I have to say that we had some interesting experiences in our kitchen that summer.
In the last 2 years, we’ve been gradually adding to our flock of hens just because we really love them so much. Chickens are way more fun to watch than TV. This past summer we also grew our first true commercial crop, pickling cucumbers. We grew over a ton of those little guys on less than 1/2 acre and they were delicious. When we went out to pick the cukes in the evening, we’d have the chickens following us to pick up the bugs that came off the vines after we shook them. What a hoot!
This next year, 2011, we plan on growing about three times as much as 2010, plus some good summer herbs(gotta have fresh Dill for pickles).
We plan on adding some new layers to the flock new spring so we can continue to have a plentiful supply of eggs. We are so happy to be living in Oklahoma and to be part of the COOP family.
Returns Policy: We will either replace eggs or refund costs, whichever the customer prefers.
