The Eugene Backyard Farmer
The experts at The Eugene Backyard Farmer acknowledge the benefits of living a rural and urban life, and have found a way to combine the two. They deal in products and accessories for urban farming—the practice of applying traditional farming practices to a standard urban property. They supply urban farmers with egg-laying chicks, and specially made chick feed that is free of hormones, steroids, and pesticides. The Eugene Backyard Farmer also carries chicken coops, packaged honeybees, Kenyan- and Warre-style beehives, and raised garden beds.
