May, Chickens: Eggs and Meat

meatchickens-2Chickens: Eggs and Meat farm tours includes learning about meat chickens, seeing them graze in chicken tractors, learning about laying hens, gathering eggs, seeing different colors, types of chickens, and chicks.  We discuss differences in caged, cage-free, free range, and pasture raised as well as other sustainable farming practices. Each tour is 1 hour in length.  **Every child who attends this tour will go  home with 2 eggs they gather themselves!**

May is the last month for baby goat bottle feeding tours. You are welcome to reserve a spot for one or both tours and stay and play/bring a lunch between the time slot.  Each tour is $5 per person (2yr and under free).  If it rains we will move the tours indoor to the barn.

Reservation requests can be made via phone or email. An invoice will be emailed to you via PayPal at time of request. Once payment is received your date will be reserved. If a cancellation is received 48 hours prior to your reserved date, a full refund will be given (minus transaction fees). If the cancellation is received after 48 hours from your reserved date no refund will be given.

Rain: We do not cancel due to rain but move the tour inside the barn.

Our farm is located 4 miles north of Lake Cunningham off of Dutch Hall Rd. We are approximately 30 minutes from Offutt AFB. Directions will be emailed to you after reservations are confirmed.

Our farm is the only certified “Home Grown by Heroes” farm in Omaha, Nebraska. We provide pasture raised broiler chickens, pasture raised eggs, raw goats milk, goat milk soap, and the only spring Rent-a-Chick education program.

Please make sure to come in farm appropriate attire. Although we strive to keep things “clean” this is a working farm and can be dirty. Hand sanitizer is provided in the barn along with water from the hose. You are welcome to use the bathroom in our house as we do not have one separate for the business.

To reserve your day/time we need the following information: Name, number of people attending, ages of children, requested day/time, contact email and contact phone number.

Let us know if you have any questions.

Blessings,

Anthony & Mariel Barreras and family
