At Brown Eggs & Lamb we started raising chickens when our kids were young to give them an opportunity to be responsible for something and to learn about business and money in a fun way. Over the years the interest and demand for eggs was surprising and we wanted to oblige our customers so we continued to expand to where we are today. We now have 300 chickens and if we run out of our own eggs we sell Bentley Colony eggs.
When we started raising sheep we started with six of them, one for each member of our family. Over the years people would stop in and ask if we sold lamb, so out of this demand we started raising more lamb.
