What really makes Thanksgiving special is the reminder to be truly grateful for all of the large and small blessings in one’s life. For us, that includes family, friends, the wonderful people that love our eggs, and the beauty of farm life.
Words by: The Family Farm Team
Thanksgiving is, without a doubt, one of our very favorite holidays on the farm. Many holidays involve family, but there is nothing quite like the warmth of home as Autumn sets in and friends and loved ones gather ‘round a harvest laden table.
The food, the family, and the fellowship are all worth celebrating. But what really makes Thanksgiving special is the reminder to be truly grateful for all of the large and small blessings in one’s life.
We are so thankful for our family, friends, and the wonderful people that love our eggs. There are also so many small blessings to be found around the farm every day. Here are a few of those little things that we are thankful for this time of year.
What are the little things in your day that you are thankful for?

Waking up in the morning. A nice hot shower. Great food. Volunteering. Good health. Good friends. Ability to exercise. Ability to pray. Just for starters....

So many things to be thankful for. Thanks for sharing, Warren - and happy Thanksgiving from all of us at Pete and Gerry's!
love getting your emails. sorry i don't buy your eggs, i have my own chickens (silkies)
i only feed them organic grain and treats. 3 of the 6 are rescues. my rooster has a cross beak, but is doing well. his only problem is that he can't crow, he only grunts - so cute. happy Thanksgiving to all.
We can't thank you enough for treating your silkies with kindness, Louise. They sound like a really sweet flock. Wishing you and yours a happy Thanksgiving!
Do hens only lay in the mornings or anytime during the day. Also how often does one hen lay an egg.
Fantastic questions, Gail! Hens typically lay an egg every 26 hours; it all depends on age, temperature, time of year, and other factors. Each hen is on her own cycle, so they'll lay at different times of day!
