Farm Fresh Eggs

Red Granite Farm raises a new flock of laying hens each year.  The new flock arrives in early April each year and start laying in August.  For a few months of the year, there will be 500+ hens laying, which can lay 30+ dozen eggs a day! They are free range, but within a pen because they would get into our vegetable gardens and our dog might try and have chicken for lunch! They are fed a ration of corn, soybean meal and other nutrients, we have blended at the local co-op. Our farm fresh eggs are available at the farm and at the Story City Locker year round.  When available, we’ll also have them for sale at the farmers market.

Seasonal Offerings

Red Granite Farm grows over 30 varieties of unique pumpkins and gourds for your fall decorating needs. Varieties such as Cinderella, Baby Boo and Knucklehead are fun to grow and fun to talk about their unique names! Pumpkin sales start mid-late September. We also have Indian corn, Bittersweet, and Mums available late September for all your decorating needs. Plan a visit in the fall this year!
