Nature's Gifts

Off to spend the day at my daughter's little farm.
It's a beautiful place, nestled down a country lane and surrounded by farm fields and rising hills.
One of the perks of farm-life, are the daily fresh eggs.
She shares them with family and friends alike.
If you've never tasted a farm fresh egg, you are missing out, those store bought eggs are just not all
they are cracked-up to be.


Farm-fresh eggs have one-third less cholesterol, a quarter less saturated fats and twice as many omega three fatty acids, than store-bought eggs.
They also have more vitamin A and E and seven times more beta carotene.
And more important, the chickens are raised humanely.

Egg-gathering always seems to draw a crowd.

Enjoy! I have my own flock, and the difference between farm fresh and humanely raised as opposed to factory farm is Night and Day.

Love those donkeys, what beautiful creatures.

What a fun place to visit. We would get farm eggs once in a while from a neighbor’s daughter. They are fun to see and I do know they are better for us. The donkeys are a hoot as they look at you, hoping for a handout. Enjoyed the visit.

What an idyllic setting!
Good for the body; good for the soul ♥

Oh my goodness! What a beautiful farm! Little donkeys, chickens, those big pretty dream! Our little place would all fit inside their barn. We do get fresh eggs though. :)

Fresh eggs are wonderful! We get them from friends here as well as at my daughter's place in the Hill country. And finding them can be a hoot as the chickens have the run of the place and lay very few (some, but few) in their nests in the chicken house. It's kind of a daily Easter egg hunt.

I'll take a dozen of the brown eggs, please! :~) I was raised on eggs from a barnyard flock and, seriously, refused to eat anything but a brown egg. Also, someone was quite creative in photographing the basket of eggs! I love the donkeys!

A really lovely place to live, the donkeys look so cute. As I have my chickens for one year now, I have plenty of fresh eggs, love the eggs and my little chickens.

Jo, My daughter gives eggs away also. It's fun to think of the chickens as pets in a way. I love the small crowd of donkeys...adorable. Great pictures. Blessings, xoxo, Susie
