We begin with a trip to the Chicken Barn to visit the chickens. During this time guests will get to pet the chickens and learn about the different parts of the chicken from flying feathers to combs. Next we will show them how to water the chickens and why the watering systems are made like they are for cleanliness and function. Also we will learn about our guillotine style door system for keeping the chickens safe each night. Then we will go inside the chicken nesting areas inside. Here we will learn about how grandpaws feeder works and why it is important. Guests will feed the chickens and visit the nesting boxes for gathering fresh eggs right from under the nesting birds. We will teach why the nesting boxes are made they way they are and why the chickens love them so much. Next we will take the gathered fresh eggs and take them to our unclassified washing kitchen at the big white barn. Here they will be taught sanitary methods for washing and storing eggs prior to use. Lastly guests will take home a dozen fresh farm eggs for them to enjoy. The total time on farm is about 1 hour + with tour of the catfish pond and feeding.

My wife Priscilla and I enjoy living on our farm in East Tennessee. We rent our Milkbarn on our small family farm of 30 acres and have been raising chickens for egg production with our children for 15 years. Commonly we spend time showing families the basics of chicken raising and egg production during overnight guests stay and now on AirBnb experiences. We use the eggs we produce to make our fresh baked goods at our Gelato Brothers Dessert Shops in the Knoxville area. We are an unclassified Tennessee egg washing facility and have many years experience in chicken husbandry and egg production.
1 dozen fresh farm eggs per group
