We've been asking you to nominate farmers who deserve recognition and 2 will be James Wesley's special guests at FrogFest June 15th. Today we thank Oliver and Shauna Aeschlimann of Oliver's Organic Eggs in Litchfield, nominated by PJ Jackson. Here's the letter she sent in:
Oliver's Organic Eggs
Oliver's Organic Egg farm raises cage free hens, who have access to outdoor pasture and eat all organic feed. They supply several local, and not so local, restaurants, stores and farm stands, with fresh organic eggs.
Oliver's family owns a neighboring dairy farm, and Oliver worked the dairy farm with his dad and brothers all his young life.
After he met and married his wife, Shauna, they put everything they had on the line to start the organic egg farm together. And they've made a real go of it, with both local and long distance customers across Central New York.
All that, In spite of the fact that last year their house burnt down and they have had to rebuild, while building their customer base for their organic egg business.
