Meanwhile in the Hen House:photo_4




Our Chickens eat very well! In the photo above they are taking care of a culled lettuce crop. Most afternoons the Girlies are out on the farm choosing their food.


Four hens in the nest. They lay their eggs “in one basket” so that only one hen has to set on the eggs….It “takes a village” to lay the eggs but only one hen to hatch them…..

New favorite hen! Little Owl...

Boggy Creek Farm in the News:


From the Austin Chronicle:
“Boggy Creek was a USDA-certified organic urban farm before it was trendy to be one (1992.)
Turn in at the big, red tomato sign on an unassuming driveway on the near Eastside, and you’ll find
a hen house, a farmhouse from the 1840s, and five acres of earthly bounty. The market stand is … .stocked with local artisanal items and the farm’s own produce harvested from either these fields or Boggy Creek’s sister farm outside Gause. Owners Larry Butler and Carol Ann Sayle have built a small culture around their labor of love with an engaging website and blog, seasonal recipes,
and even a children’s book based on their chickens.”
