Farm Fresh Eggs
By far our biggest selling (and fastest selling-out) item, our Farm Fresh Eggs are enjoyed by a repeat line of first-come-first-served customers for their pasture-raised quality and competitive pricing. Though supplies go fast, we encourage interested buyers to let us know about their desired orders so we can plan accordingly for future growth. If supplies are sold out, but you are interested in becoming one of our repeat customers, e-mail us at email@example.com.

Our Farm Fresh Eggs are produced with the help of our son “E” (abbreviated for privacy reasons) who helps handle the feeding, watering, and general safety of our flocks of chickens. He also helps (or recruits the “hired help” of his siblings) with the collection of eggs. Whenever eggs are sold, “E” then helps inspect and package egg orders for distribution.
About The Product
All of our egg-laying chickens at the Kinnard Family Homestead are raised in their own large fenced-in pasture paddock where they are free to range, scratch, and forage to their heart’s content. As a feed supplement, we give them clean, whole and cracked grains, together with crushed calcium-rich oyster shell to promote stronger eggshells. The hens also enjoy plenty of produce and herb scraps straight from our family’s kitchen.
In Arkansas, the sale of Cottage Foods does not require a permit or license from the Arkansas Department of Health ("ADH"). According to section 20-57-201 of the Arkansas Code, a “Cottage Food Production Operation” means a person who produces food items in the person’s home that are not potentially hazardous foods, including without limitation:
- Bakery products
- Fruit butter
- Chocolate-covered fruit and berries that are not cut
Food items that are considered "potentially hazardous" do not qualify as a Cottage Food and, therefore, do require a permit or license to sell from the ADH. These items include:
- Food items that must be kept refrigerated or hot to remain safe (Examples: cheesecakes, Tres Leches cakes, cream or cheese filled items, cream pies, meringue pies, custard pies, items containing meat, and cream cheese based frostings or fillings.)
- Food items made with splenda and similar sugar substitutes
