PULLET EGGS!

We have some beautiful pullet eggs available for purchase right now, only $2.70/dozen!
Pullet eggs come from a pullet (young hen). These eggs are the first few eggs she lays. They are a tad smaller than the chickens eggs you most often see, but flavor and composition are the the same.
These eggs come from a Amish family farmer, Norman Miller & Family, out of Pardeeville, WI.
Stop on in and stock up on these little cuties!

Cooking with dried legumes is a healthy way to add fiber and protein to your diet. Steamy bean soups and stews can offer some comfort in the coldest winter months, plus they are easy on the budget! These organic yellow split peas are only $1.33/lb–you can’t go wrong with that price!
Here is a tasty vegetatian split pea recipe from Whole Foods. If you prefer a more traditional split pea soup, check out our meat freezer for Golden Bear Farm ham!
