Updates from the Farms:
The ducks are sitting on their duck eggs at Taitu Farm. Lol. This means a pause on duck eggs being available on the market for a few weeks, but that also means our duck farmer is about to be a mama again. She’ll be expanding her operation to provide even more eggs in the future.

Season changes! The Market is Open!
