    Congratulations on being named Farmer of the Day! I lived in Kearns nearly 50 years ago. It sure has changed since then.

    Roxx, congratulations on being farmer of the day. Your eggs look lovely. I love the variety you get when you have different breeds of chickens. I don't have my own but I do buy eggs from another urban farmer who does. How do you use your hops?
