To scale their pasture-grown egg operation, YundWell is raising funds to purchase an automated egg washer and custom-printed egg cartons.
Funded on 05/07/2021
At YundWell Pastured Poultry in Columbia County, New York, meat birds and laying hens live roam free in the open air pasture, gaining flavor and nutrients with years, and rebuilding the soil with their manure and scratching. Protected from both aerial and land predation by a team of guardian dogs--Nellie, Esther, and Roscoe--YundWell’s pastured poultry are never confined. Owners Mike Yund and Michelle Maxwell offer their chicken, eggs, and Thanksgiving turkey at their farm stand and through many local grocers, farm stores, and CSAs.
YundWell’s nutritious, tasty, and ethically raised meat and eggs are building demand in their community. To support the growth of their business, they’re raising funds to purchase an automated egg washer and custom-printed egg cartons. With those in hand, they’ll be able to expand the size of their laying flock and maximize efficiency in their work.
YundWell prizes the health of their birds and building the life of their soil. Unlike so many other poultry operations, their birds aren’t bred in large warehouses and kept packed together, unable to move. Mike and Michelle utilize a number of regenerative practices in their operation:
