Pasture Raised EGGS
Pasture-Raised EGGS from our urban homestead flock. Our Community Care Share eggs are offered in 1/2 dozen portions for BIPOC for FREE.
Our flock consists of 7 chickens:
1 cuckoo maran - Guinan
2 barred rocks - Piper and Michael Burnam
1 rhode island reds - Chickeeda
3 buff orpingtons - Lursa, B'Etor and 7 of 9
What are Community Care Shares?
Community Care Shares are a mutual aid offering/program from Conscious Homestead. Once our urban homestead gardens are ready to harvest we will take stock of what is available to share with the community. On a weekly basis we will clean, divide and package our homestead grown produce for redistribution within the local BIPOC community.
How does it work?
Sign up by filling out this brief form here. When the grow season begins, we will send out a weekly message to the folks who sign up here with a link to this very page; our online Community Care Shares Shop.
The shop will list all of the produce (homestead grown vegetables, fruits, herbs, teas, ferments, eggs, seedlings, seeds etc.) available to the community. Scroll through the online shop and select the items you would like set aside for pick-up on a designated date and time that will be listed in the weekly email message.
Being that we are operating from a small urban homestead understand that:
- everyone on this list is not guaranteed to receive a community care share every week; at this point its first come, first serve. (we welcome suggestions)
- sizes of food varies; for example 1 serving may be 1 large zucchini or 2 small zucchinis (we do our best to evenly divide the weekly harvest to share)
- we may need to limit the number of items per person when reserving your community care share to enable more folks to have access to the harvest
Additionally, we have chosen a market format so folks can order only what they want for pick-up; this differs from community supported agriculture (CSA) shares where every recipient receives a portion of the harvest with all items in that box chosen for you by the farmers.
Community Care Shares are FREE to BIPOC.
We welcome donations but they are not required.
