Besteyfield Farm's hens are raised on pasture in warmer months, and in greenhouses during colder months. Their diet includes a healthy mix of grain, pasture, and food scraps from local farms and co-ops. Feeding fresh food scraps gives these hens a boost of vitamins, minerals, and nutrients, and it also helps prevent food waste from local farms and businesses!

Fun Fact: Besteyfield Farm started as an "incubator farm" in the Intervale Center's Beginning Farms program. After completing the program, Ben Butterfield and his family moved their "rather contented hens" to a farm in Hinesburg, Vermont, where they can continue to grow their business, raise happy hens, and provide us with very high-quality eggs!

Cooking with Eggs 
Eggs provide a versatile and affordable protein source at any meal of the day. Try egg sandwiches for breakfast, slice hard-boiled eggs on salad for lunch, make quick veggie omelettes for dinner, and serve up a scramble for weekend brunch! Eggs are great to have on hand for baking, too.
