On June 28 we experienced unseasonably hot weather with record heat indices.
While we take precautions to protect our animals from weather extremes sometimes nature gets the upper hand. As a result of the extreme heat on Thursday June 28 we had approximately half of our laying hen flock die.
The result of this is that we now do not have enough eggs to continue supplying our off farm retail egg customers. We are suspending sales of eggs at Wales Lawn and Garden and The Paperchase Gas Station in Dousman until we can replace the hens we lost.
It takes approximately 6 months to raise a hen from a chick and while it is possible to buy hens that are already laying they are not always readily available. We also need to consider our feed supply going forward, with the dry weather we are experiencing this year we are concerned we may not have enough feed for next year.
We appreciate your Patronage and look forward to supplying you eggs again in the future. Please bear with us while we work through this traumatic event.
We will post updates on our website and Facebook page about egg availability. For now we will be selling eggs only at the farm at W394 S4398 Hwy Z, Dousman. Our regular hours are Saturdays 9 am until noon. You can also make an appointment for other times during the week.
Again, Thank You for your Patronage, Support, and Understanding
Mac and Nicole Riemenschneider and Family

We will be open this Saturday from 9am to Noon. We had a pretty big turnout last weekend so we are sold out of some things again, but we still have a lot left. Steaks, roasts, pork chops, bacon, chickens and asparagus among them. We have a butcher date for June 21 and will be restocking our beef supply. We will have the meat back for sale on the 23rd of June. I will update the products page when we pick up so you can see what we had made. See you tomorrow!
