Southview Farms Ltd. has been awarded Egg Farmers of Nova Scotia’s 2021 Farm of the Year! The Clarke family takes great pride in caring for their hens, supplying Nova Scotians with fresh, high-quality eggs, and supporting local organizations. Congratulations Southview Farms Ltd. and the whole Clarke family!
I am happy to say I am the 5th generation on our family farm, following in my Dad’s footsteps. I enjoy the experience of caring for our flocks, right from the beginning of day-old chicks. Sharing this knowledge and experience with my children is both rewarding and a privilege. I am proud to be an egg farmer, which allows me to provide a good rural quality of life for my family and an “eggcellent” nutritious product for all.
A hen will sometimes produce double-yolk eggs at the very beginning or near the end of her reproductive life due to hormonal changes. When this happens, the shell forms around two yolks instead of one, causing a double yolk egg. Our children find it exciting to discover a double yolk egg!
I love Deviled Eggs!
