We continue to expand our line of Goats Milk Soap.
The hens on the farm are a mix of breeds. Rhode Island Red, Dominique, Barred Rock, Austra White, Salmon Faverolle, Easter Egger, Cinnamon Queen, New Hampshires, and Speckled Sussex.
The breed of hen determines the color of the eggshell. The color of egg yolks can be influenced by the hen’s diet (and in rare cases their health).
Tin Shed Farm hens are fed NatureWise by Nutrena. This feed contains no antibiotics, animal by-products or chemicals. The hens have day-time access to the entire property. At night they sleep in a secure building to protect them from predators.
Tin Shed Farm eggs are refrigerated after they are gathered. Once eggs are refrigerated, they should not be kept at room temperature. Eggs sell for $5/dozen CALL 815-260-9618 for availability.
Honey and Bee's Wax
Tin Shed Farm honey is raw honey. The honey is extracted from the comb and screened to remove bits of wax and bees. That’s it! No filtering or heating take place.
Properly harvested honey does not spoil. Store your honey at room temperature, never in the refrigerator. Use a clean utensil to dispense honey or better yet pour it from the jar. We have a small container that we fill from the jars and keep on the counter.
If your honey crystallizes and you prefer to use it in a liquid state, warm the honey in a hot water bath, NEVER in the microwave.
