SCRATCH DELI SUPPORTS SKYLIGHT FARMS PASTURED EGGS!
Skylight Farms is a family-owned and operated farm located in
Snohomish, Washington. They use sustainable, and ecological
practices, and take pride in growing delicious food for our community. Skylight Farms grow a
diverse mix of vegetables, fruit, and herbs, maintain a flock of pastured hens for eggs, operate
our own bee hives, and have a small herd of beef cattle.
Our chickens eat naturally-grown soy-free, corn-free, non-GMO feed, as well as
leftover produce and anything they find to peck at in our fields. During the day,
they roam around in open fields and forage for food (grasses, seeds, and insects).
At night they find shelter in a mobile henhouse, where they sleep, roost, and lay
eggs. Once they have pecked and scratched an area to their hearts' content, we
move them to a new location so they constantly have fresh forage.
What are pastured eggs? It means that our chickens live, eat, and play in our
fields, and are able to run around freely, scratch, and forage for their favorite
foods in the great outdoors. We provide a home to about 250 chickens. Our flock
is made up of Leghorn, Black Australorps, Ameraucana, Golden Comet chickens.
The chickens help us by providing a natural means of pest control and fertilizing
the fields. You can tell that they are happy and well-fed by simply cracking open
one of their eggs. They are the most delicious, flavorful, richly colored,
golden-yolked eggs.period. Once you've had one of our pastured eggs, you
won't go back!
COOL, RIGHT? WE THINK SO TOO!
