Egg CSA, in the city?

I am embarking on a new adventure! This spring I will be starting the first NYC based Egg CSA with bk farmyards! The motivation for this project, 1. I love chickens and want more time with more of them, but really most importantly 2. I want to see a viable local source of protein. I love vegetables, but they are just not enough. Sure we can grow beans and grains, but I want to push further.

Stacey Murphy, founder of bk farmyards, and architect extrodinaire, has designed a wonderful coop. Our hens will live in a 102 square foot palace, with free access to a covered run. We will be feeding the birds organic feed as well as a combinaiton of food scraps from markets, spent grains from beer brewing, left over wheat grass and of course wild bugs grubs and whatever they find wondering the gardens.

Stay tuned for updates, we will soon be building the coop, ordering ridiculously cute chicks in the mail (and training them with my patented chick training method), bringing in 1 year old hens froma near by farm.

The Egg CSA is now accepting members. Membership is open to residents of N. Crown Heights and Bed Stuy. To joing please email bee (@) bkfarmyards (dot) com
