Bloom - When a chicken lays an egg it has a wet coating on it called the bloom.  As it dries it prevents bacteria from being absorbed into the egg.  We do not wash the bloom off the egg.  We might have to take a little off if there is some chicken poo on it but we do our best to keep the eggs as natural as possible, the way Mother Nature intended.

Spoiled – Heat Lamps in Winter or Really Cold Nights; Ice in the Waterers in the Heat of Summer – keep them happy and they keep us happy.

Come when called and love greens for “snacks”.  At market, we keep a compost bin so if we find a smashed tomato or some wilted greens, we throw them in for “the girls”.  They know when we are back from market and come running to see what we brought back for them…  (If You have Organic / Chemical free / heirloom produce “by-product” – leaves, remnants from juicing, too wilty, etc… , you can bring it to the market.  If it is not up to quality for the girls, we will compost it.)

Layers (egg laying chickens – aka. “the girls”) have no fences – they have acres to run around and they do.  They have their own “Clicks” or social groups and they have their territories.  Funny when you see them run another chicken off that isn’t part of their troop.  Maybe the word gang is more appropriate.  :)  (Chickens can recognize up to over 100 different birds.)

Broilers (meat chickens) are only raised on fresh grass / pasture.  These birds* are not active enough so we force them to fresh grass every 24 hours in the large pens.  They have sunshine, shelter and fresh water at all times.  They get a NON-GMO feed in the morning and it is picked up in the evening.  Once the food is removed that is when they are moved to fresh pasture.  This is when they lay around and eat grass and search for bugs.

  • For ODA processing, there are only 2 processors licensed in the State of Ohio.  Both processors will only process the Cornish Cross chickens as cuts for resale.  So any vendor you purchase chicken from at market is probably raising this breed.  We have looked at other breeds but our hands are tied here.  (Farm Gate sales is different.  Ask us if you want more information.)

What Sets Us Apart From the Rest

Worthington Farmer's Market Dates - 2015

Latest Updates

  • 3/16/2015 -  I/Tracy went to the family doctor for a renewal of my asthma medications (that I stopped on 12/1/2014 in exchange for some well researched all natural therapy.  I was tested and I have been officially taken off my daily dose of a corticosteroid but he did recommend I keep the rescue inhaler just in case.  It has taken me over 8 years of detoxing my life / environment and I have just jumped over the biggest one.  WOOT!
  • 4/28/2015 - We are sold out of chicken until the market after 5/28.  Thank you to our customers and we are increasing production by 50% hoping to keep up with demand.
  • 5/8/2015 - I have been doing really well with the doTERRA oils to treat just about anything I come cross (that coconut oil doesn't fix).  Stop by the market if you want to talk  or we can exchange email.  Click on the "Contact Us" link above to reach us.  Oh and since I am 43 and pregnant with our first (and only) child, I am doing this "clean".   I think God timed this for us since I believe my body was not ready until now. :)
