On Monday I picked up our first batch of truly local Petaluma eggs from Vikki Straub. I met Vikki at the Petaluma Farmers Market earlier this year and went to visit her little one acre mini farm. Vikki has 100 new birds and some of them are Araucanas so look out for green and blue eggs at the farmers market later in 2011.
One of Vikki’s favorite crops to grow is Big Daddy onions that she gets from Dixondale Farms. She sent in a picture of herself holding up the onions and they included it in the new catalog!
