Times are tight. I know many of you can relate to how difficult it can be to afford good quality food. Many residents of Lincoln County and the surrounding areas cannot afford to purchase quality food for their families. We want to bring our community together to make that task a bit easier for those in need.
Many of you know that we have been donating our excess eggs to the Food Share of Lincoln County, the Newport Winter Shelter, Newport Oregon, the Siletz Food Pantry, and any other group who comes to us with a need for eggs. When we started the farm in 2005 one of our goals was to get local, nutritious, tasty food to low income families. We enjoy being able to share our excess and plan to continue donations for as long as we have an overabundance.
Sadly, with the combination of rising demand and rising costs, we cannot guarantee that we will always be able to sustain these donation levels. That's where your help becomes key! We are introducing a program called "Donate A Dozen" to help support egg donations to those in need. When you shop at the Walker Farms booth at the local markets you will be able to add $5 to your total for the "Donate A Dozen" program and we will deliver a dozen of our super fresh, nutritious and delicious eggs to a local charity that is helping feed those in need.
You can currently find us at the Newport Farmers Market at the Lincoln County Fairgrounds on Saturdays from 9 am until 1 pm. We will update with additional market information as more markets begin to open in the late spring. You can also make arrangements to donate by calling us at 541-444-2445. We hope you will join us in Donating A Dozen if you are able. As always, thank you for your continued support of our little business! ... See MoreSee Less
