Doko Farm in Blythewood - Current Produce

Doko Farm reports that it has added two more heritage breeds to its farm: Buckeye and Dark Cornish chickens. Amanda and Joe note that they'll be ready for your family's table in June. These breeds are listed by the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy as critically rare and a breed to watch, respectively.

Currently available at Doko: eggs from their flock of laying chickens. The eggs are hand collected and range in color from creamy white to speckled brown and cool shades of green, but their beauty is more than just shell deep. The yolks are dark and rich, almost orange, and they are delicious. The flock is made up of three heritage breeds (Jersey Giants, Dominiques, and Dorking), as well as Americaunas, and some interesting crosses. Eggs are available direct from the farm for $3 per dozen.

Doko also has daffodils available, while they last. Unscented varieties are 4 stems for $1 and scented varieties are 2 stems for $1.
