Little Bit Farm
Established 1988
These are truly free range or some call them pasture raised hens. They run around grass pastures all day and are safely put up loose in the barn every night. 
Just introduced produce this year. Lots of tomatoes and garlic grown here without herbicides, pesticides, or chemical fertilizers. Hoping to have some asparagus next spring. 
Best Eggs inTown!
Fresh and Raised Right
The hens spend their days gathering bugs and grass. They also have non-GMO feed available in the barn.  Fresh rainwater is also available, no city water for these birds. In the winter, they still pick around outside, searching through the hay for goodies to eat. Egg production is lower this way but the quality is greatly increased. These eggs have bright orange yolks, the whites stand up, rich in flavor, and loaded with Omega -3 fatty acids. They are also a good source of lutein and zeaxanthin. 
Real eggs are a seasonal product. In the spring, with increasing daylight, egg production goes up. It tapers down in the fall and winter production is even more limited. 
Eggs are available, self serve, on the farm, in a cooler at the end of the drive. $3.50 a dozen. Come early they sell out fast!
  1. 0
    Are gathered daily and put out the next morning. Normally they are only 1 or 2 days old. On the rare occasions that they don't sell out, they are removed and repurposed, they will never be over 4 days old, unlike store eggs that can be sold for up to 45 days.
  2. 1
    Arrive in late winter. Some will be sold for meat in the last summer or early fall. Others will be sold for breeding stock and some will be retained for breeding stock here.
  3. 2
    Last year only hard scape garlic was available. Next year there should be hardneck, softneck and elephant garlic.
  4. 3
    Lots of different varieties were grown this year. Several heirlooms and some common ones. Big tomatoes, little tomatoes, red tomatoes, yellow tomatoes.
  1. Katahdin Sheep
    Katahdin Sheep
    Raised in pasture, these hair sheep are easy keepers. Just a little bit of non-GMO corn to entice them into the barn when needed. This breed naturally sheds their winter coat in the spring. Lambs are available in the fall and occasionally breeding stock is also available.
  2. Garlic
    Garlic is harvested in July and available at that time.

    Little Bit Farm
    19 acres located in a valley along a couple creeks in east-central Illinois. It's called Little Bit Farm because there is a little bit of this and a little bit of that.
