Graceful Acres Farm raises dual-purpose chickens on pasture. We sell eggs, grown layer chickens and pullets from our farm in Pittsboro, North Carolina with covid-safe driveway pickup. The chicken breeds that we are currently growing include:
We sell pullets in the spring and summer, and grown chickens year round.
Our birds are started in small pens with a coop, then moved and raised in large mobile electric pens on pasture. We feed them organic feed and non-gmo scratch that includes omega-3 and they run around enjoying pasture greens and bugs in the field. We rotate our birds to fresh ground regularly to maintain health and ensure a variety of fresh feed sources.
We accept Paypal or cash payments.
We have pullets and fertilized eggs for sale now in April, and will have productive hens late this summer.
We offer fresh egg subscriptions with driveway pickup on the farm by appointment for covid safety. Our eggs are picked daily. They are washed in mild soap, packed and refrigerated with care. You will receive a variety of eggs from multiple breeds, mostly brown in color. We do not sell eggs more than two weeks old, they are donated or recycled in compost.
Weekly Subscribers receive our freshest eggs, usually laid within days from pickup. If you'd like to bring back and reuse your cartons, we can label them with your name and keep them separate for safety and sustainability.
All chicken sales are final. Chickens are healthy at the time of sale. It is always a good idea to separate your chickens when they are new, and allow them time to adjust and be separate from your other birds. Our chckens are fed organic feed, non-gmo grain, weeds, vegetable scraps and healthy pasture greens and bugs.
Chicks are sold straight-run until they are old enough to be sexed accurately. For chicks that we hatch, they will be given the Mareks vaccine. We have never had an outbreak of Mareks or other disease in our flock.
