• The Coop de Ville Tour •
Sunday, August 4th
In celebration of the Local Egg … Experience a sampling of the Island’s egg culture with this delicious and fun day.
Tour-ists will start with an Eggelicious brunch at The Grey Barn, see custom designed coops, visit with the breeds, and then head out to tour with maps in hand.
This event supports Slow Food MV’s principles of Good, Clean and Fair food.
Visitors will learn about “fresh” eggs, “local” eggs and the chicken keepers that make it all happen. Some of the Tour topics will be egg labeling, how laying chickens are raised, the flavor of an egg, chicken breeds and what eggs they lay, the farm-to-table movement, and how to become a chicken keeper.
