Nana out on a cool day this spring at the egg mobile.

This next Wednesday, Nov. 28th, EVERY penny will go to Hospice of the Piedmont to honor this lady, Nan Brewer, my mom.  Some of you met her at the egg sales, some of you know her only through my mention of her.  What...

CLICK HERE to hear Tom and Kathleen, the Jolly Folly Farmers, talking flock on a local talk-radio show.

I felt nervous (which is hilarious in itself) and we didn't get to say everything we wanted to say because the time goes SO FAST.  But that's not a bad thing, because...

I had a customer tell me she's gotten many double-yolks.  She was so excited, and rightfully so: double-yolks are good luck!  And, better yet, they are loaded with more of the great nutrition locked in your organically fed, free roamin' egg.

However, it is super ra...

It is one of those days.  Those weeks.  Those months.  Normally here at Jolly Folly Farm, I try to stay focused on farming, farm issues, and animal welfare issues.  No one likes a whiner.  No one.   A few years ago there was another farmer who enjoyed whingeing. Everyw...

Merry Christmas from your feathered and furry friends at Jolly Folly Farm!  The Nativity always shows us Jesus in a stable, with animals nearby.  There is always a donkey at the Nativity, though none so cute as our Ivy when she enjoyed the first snow of winter 2017....
