The petite 35-acre Little Eorthe Farm is part of the larger Orting Valley Farms, a PCC Farmland Trust project since 2009. Little Eorthe's 600 hens are free to roam acres of healthy pasture, and it's no surprise that this relaxed, highly nutritious lifestyle results in delicious eggs. We talk to farmer Carrie Little about how she uses the chickens to help clear and fertilize her land while collecting their exceptional eggs.
