    Pendleton Family Farm June 22, 2021

    We have eggs! Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would be this excited about farm fresh eggs, but after you care for an animal for 18 weeks, feed, love, and give them the very best life humanly possible…it’s magical. Like a big butt nugget thank you. ๐Ÿ™‚ DUCK EGGS The kicker? We’re not just getting chicken eggs, but delicious rich duck eggs as well. It’s embarrassing how…

It turned out more perfect than I could have dreamed, even if they have only…
