Farmer Fridays are back at the Brewery!

The new hen coop..."The Chicken Palace", house on wheels

Spring fever is upon us here at Bluebird Farm! How about you?

Well, we’ll be back for weekly Farmer Fridays starting this Friday March 23rd…Tomorrow, from 5-6:30pm you can stop by the Catawba Valley Brewing Company to stock up on farm fresh free-range eggs, pastured pork, and pastured chicken.

We’ll also have limited amounts of vegetables…over-wintered kale, chard, and parsley from our garden. Ready for some greens? How about some Swiss chard in a locally ingredient quiche?

Did you know that hens lay the most eggs in the spring? Think of Easter and eggs, because eggs are really in season right now. Buy a few dozen and make some delicious egg salad, quiche, or deviled eggs. Remember to let our super fresh eggs “rest” in the fridge for about 1 week before making boiled eggs for easier shell peeling.

See you tomorrow at the Catawba Valley Brewery in beautiful downtown Morganton.

Check out the photos of the new "Chicken Palace," a hen coop on wheels, our hens are living in style!
