Pat & Jo Flack
Homestead Farm sells conventional, organic and free-run eggs.
Pat’s parents, Tom and Margaret Flack, began raising chickens in 1967. Initially, they raised chickens for meat, but eventually transitioned towards raising them for eggs.
In 1978, they began sending their eggs to local grading stations so they could be sold in stores. By 1986, the opportunity arose to purchase and construct an on-farm egg grading station. In present day, Homestead (in addition to their own flocks) purchase eggs from local Amish and Mennonite communities to offer a larger variety of eggs – including free run & organic.
