How to Go to a Farm

Some farms have a visible sign or sales stand, while others don't. If the farm has a sign, you can drive on in. Sometimes you will encounter a closed gate at a home farm. This doesn't usually mean keep out (unless it says so)--- it's for the animals. If you encounter a gate across a driveway or road, at a place that you know sells eggs, the custom is to honk your horn (or give a country holler) to let the farmer know you're there. Sometimes one must wait a few minutes until the farmers can finish what they're doing. In all cases, it is best to call or email ahead.

SECURELY CLOSE ALL GATES YOU OPEN! Often the local people maintain a road out of their own pockets. Fast driving can tear it up. Show your consideration by driving ultra slowly.

Please don't forget to take your Lions Grip Traction Pads tm And have a great drive! Let us know what you find!

Look for the old blue truck that has the 'EGGS' sign on it. That's where we're at. We are a working family farm, but still enjoy visitors. It's always best to call ahead.

We sell mostly chicken eggs but also have turkey and duck eggs for sale. Locally, we're known as the farm with the colored eggs (brown green, blue and white). Our birds are never caged, instead, they are pastured and/or free-range.

There are always things to do:

For the kids - they can get to know our many farm critters and their babies. We raise llamas, goats, sheep, turkeys, ducks, chickens, bunnies, pastured hogs, pot-bellied pigs and Scottish Highlander cattle. For the adults - this is wine country. There are many area vineyards (including ours) and wineries. If the season is right, you can help pick grapes in the vineyard.

Hope to see you soon!

Family Friendly Farm is a family farm business located just ten minutes north of Cape Girardeau and two hours south of St. Louis. Our desire is to produce the healthiest, most nutritious meat so our customers feel good about eating it and feeding it to their families. They feel confident knowing where their food is coming from, how it was raised, what it was fed and how it was processed. We raise pastured chicken, eggs from hens on pasture, pastured pork and grass-fed beef. All of our animals are allowed unlimited sunshine, fresh air and exercise, never fed antibiotics, hormones, or growth stimulants. Using sustainable agriculture techniques, we provide an environment where they thrive. In return, the animals provide a safe, healthy, nutritious meat for our families to eat.

Customers are welcome to visit the farm often, see the animals growing, help collect eggs or watch chicken processing. This kind of hands-on environment allows the customer to feel like this is their farm, too. That is the way it should be.

If you can't drop by the farm, Family Friendly Farm products are available for purchase through Buyer's Clubs in the Cape Girardeau and St. Louis areas as well as at the Cape Alternative Farmers' Market, located at Arena Park in Cape Girardeau. The market runs from mid-April through August and is open Wednesdays, 8am to noon.

We are a sustainable, "beyond organic", polyculture farm. We currently produce free-range eggs and pastured broilers on the same pasture as our alpacas and mini-nubian goats. All of our chickens are fed a completely ruminant free, medication free feed and receive no medications of any kind. Locally we have the Farmer's Market every Saturday in the Gibsonville Town Green which is where we sell our products.

We do welcome customers to our farm, though we do request advance notice. They should contact us via our farm's Facebook page under Asgard Farm, email at or phone Eddie or Allie at (336) 266-8113. At this point an appointment is necessary as we stay fairly busy.

Our free range hens follow our alpacas on a pasture rotation. That currently means 60 Barred Rock and Rhode Island Red hens have access to over two acres of grass, sunshine and bugs. Our colored broilers are pasture raised in "chicken tractors" following the agricultural model of Joel Salatin's Polyface Farm. They are essentially light weight 6x12 foot enclosures that hold between 25-50 broilers and are moved to fresh pasture once or twice a day, depending on the condition of the pasture. All of our chickens get as much grass, bugs, fresh air and sunshine they can possibly get their beaks on.

Our feed is currently a prepared mixture which contains no medications of any kind nor any animal proteins (a chicken can only get approximately 30% of it's dietary needs from pasture alone). Our only dewormer is diotamaceous earth which is given to all of our stock. We also use no fertilizers or herbicides on our pastures or anywhere on our farm.

We process all of our chickens on our farm, the offal is composted.

We are dedicated to providing a healthy, local, sustainable food source for our community, our friends and our neighbors. Here is a link to an article that was just written about us in our local paper, it was a full front page story.

Big Oaks Ranch sells pasture-grazed yard eggs, Our hens graze the pastures and fields freely. The eggs are of superior quality and free from added hormones, feed fillers, antibiotics, herbicides and pesticides. In "pastured poultry" the hens are provided with mobile coops with laying boxes. The hens roost and lay the eggs in these boxes; the coops are moved over fresh pasture every two or three days. The litter goes to the ground as fertilizer. The coops are cleaned every day. The chicken litter is recycled through the ranch compost pile. This maintains a clean and healthy environment for the animals and is a natural and organic means of fertilization. The Big Oaks Ranch roosters keep the hens happy!

We also sell Grassfed Beef, Grassfed Goats, Hay, and APHA Horses! Directions to Big Oaks Ranch are on the website. Please call us for a visit or an appointment.

Organic Chicken Feed at


Types of Feed

Mash: a blend of several feed ingredients, ground to a small size but not to a powder
Pellets: small kernels of compressed mash, causing birds to eat the whole blend, not pick and choose
Crumbles: pellets broken up into smaller pieces
Starter: a blend of feed for chicks and growing birds, usually in the form of mash; approximately the same as "Grower"; can be replaced with "adult" food as soon as chicks go for it, somewhere between 4 and 8 weeks of age
Grower: approximately the same as "Starter"
Layer: feed blend for chickens that are laying eggs, having extra calcium and protein added
Broiler: feed blend for chickens that are growing as fast as possible, in order to be harvested for meat as early as possible
Scratch: whole grains fed separately to chickens, usually scattered on the ground or litter of the coop; usually a mixture of grains, such as wheat, rye, oats, etc. (corn/maize must be cracked before using as scratch grain)

Feed Ingredients

Concentrate: a blend of protein-rich foods, plus any other nutrients desired; usually fed together with a grain ration
Grit: angular, hard crushed rock, preferably from granite, used by the chickens in place of "teeth" --- seashells and bone CANNOT substitute for grit; for confinded birds, grit should be offered several times a month at least; it should be of the right size for the age of the bird (see Baby Chicks page); birds allowed to free range don't need to be offered grit -- they find their own ideal sizes and types to suit themselves
Corn: American term meaning maize corn, or "corn on the cob" (in England "corn" means what grain means in the US, that is, all food grains)
Grain: American term meaning any small, hard seeds, especially grass-family seeds (called corn in England); provides energy, B vitamins, phosphorus, and the whole grains are a fair source of protein, too
Bran: the outer coating of a kernel of grain; extremely high in silicon, which slows down its decomposing in the soil; cheap by-product of milling, often given away free by large mills
Germ: the embryo plant inside a kernel of grain; very nutritious and high in protein; wheat and rice germ (also called "rice polish") are a saleable by-product of milling
Middlings: an old milling term for the parts of the kernel that are milled off with the germ, and probably contain both the starch and bran (please email me if you have more specific information :-)
Calcium: provided by sea shells, crushed bone, and fresh or dried greens --- amounts need to be measured closely, if not free range; must be provided in higher quantities as soon as chickens begin to lay eggs
Protein: any food high in amino acids, used to build tissues; protein quality is determined by the "completeness" of the amino acid varieties in the food source; all meats, eggs of all kinds, milk, cheese, nuts, seed germs, and soy beans are high protein sources
Amino acid: a molecule that is one building block of protein; there are many different amino acids, most of which can be manufactured in the body; the few that cannot must be supplied by foods, and are called "Essential Amino Acids"; a food that supplies all 8 essential amino acids is called "complete"
Vitamins: an old, general term meaning "life-giving"; a chemical found in nature or made by man to imitate natural ones; new vitamins, and new uses for known vitamins, are always being discovered
Minerals: non-life-created chemicals found in nature; these and vitamins can be added to dietary regimens to improve health; sea water contains all the minerals of the earth, in their natural forms and safe amounts; "trace minerals" are those needed in relatively very tiny amounts, and can be highly toxic if these amounts are exceeded; "macro-minerals" are those needed in large amounts, such as calcium, phosphorous, and magnesium
Kelp: sea-weed, plants that grow in the sea; contains all the minerals of the earth; all kelp is edible, and can easily be dried and fed to chickens by clipping a sheaf of it to something in their area (also, this replaces any need to add salt to their rations)

Methods of Raising Poultry

Free range: ideally, not controlled by fences, able to get to fresh greens and insects; as commercially used, this term allows fences, with minimum amount of space per bird set by government agency definition
Pastured poultry: hens kept in movable, usually wheeled, pens, moved daily over fresh pasture, creating delicious meat and the very most nutritious eggs (and very fertile pastureland, too)
Organic: inspected by government agencies, organic food sources must not contain traces of harmful chemicals; the term as currently used does not insure that poultry has been raised in the best possible way, only that it has near zero harmful ingredients

Types of Chickens

Pullets: female chickens in their first year of lay, or prior to their first moult; female baby chicks
Hens: female chickens in their second year of lay, or after their first moult
Straight Run: a random mixture of male and female baby chicks, usually less expensive than only pullets
Cockerels: male baby chicks; male young domestic fowl
Rooster: adult male chicken, or adult male of other domestic or non-domestic fowl
Broilers: chickens raised to be eaten
Meat birds: old term for broilers
Layers: chickens raised to be egg-layers
Layer-Broiler: chickens raised to be both egg-layer and to be eaten
Bantam: a miniaturized chicken of any breed; most breeds have a regular-size and a bantam variety
Banty: same as Bantam
