About our eggs...
Ringger Family Farm started in Bastrop County in 2002. Our main farm enterprise at first was raising pastured laying
hens, along with a few dairy and meat goats. The way we raise our chickens creates a different product for consumers who are interested in healthy and local foods.
We use no chemicals or hormones with our chickens or our pasture. We move the chickens about once a week to a new section of pasture so they get new grass and bugs to eat. An "eggmobile" is moved along with the chickens so that they have a place to lay the eggs, and some protection from the wind and sun. Moving them across pasture also provides for a more evenly distributed return of fertilizer to the soil. Their diet is supplemented with a non-gmo, non-soy feed that we grind ourselves.
As of 2013, our main enterprises have become produce, eggs, and meat goats.
General Feed Ingredient categories (ingredients may vary depending on availability):
1. Grass/other greens from pasture 2. Bugs from pasture 3. Milo 4. Peanuts 5. Wheat or Oats 6. Minerals
