I finally went to this place after it was recommended to me months ago by another local but they ROCK!

almost all their eggs are cage free and their all their meat is

I was geeked to have a cage free organic turkey and cage free homone free dairy this thanksgiving but got busy and forgot to post it !

Thanks!

Are we talking Peacock Poultry?

Lol a few years ago my car got borderline totaled by one of their drivers when they rear-ended me on the freeway (I was at a stop).

I had no idea they were organic though!

Just and FYI, they are not organic. They ship in their stuff from Indiana Amish country. If you read their site is also does not say that they are "cage free" it says the chickens are raised in spacious houses with plenty of fresh air. Also, they do not say anything about *not* using antibiotics. Amish is better than conventional, but not necessarily organic.

yeah, not to be a downer, but their poultry is the same stuff you can buy at Kroger..same brand..same farm. Sure, it's better, but def. not organic. If I'm in the area I do try to buy from them though since they are a family owned small company. I buy roll butter from them as well. Their milk, for sure is not raw...not legal to sell raw. It's from a farm in Romeo I believe - again, better to buy it there than the grocery store..but we get raw.

This is right down the street from where we live and I have always been meaning to stop in but never seem to. I should go check it out, at least for the butter. We get our milk raw as well...
