From Coop to Kitchen
How can you make a difference in today’s world? Think differently, Zenhens does. Our goal is to deliver a consistent source of local, fresh, organically raised chicken eggs and organic produce. Critical to Zenhens Producer Network is support of local backyard chicken keepers, developing sustainable agricultural practices and selling our food at area farmers markets. We are all looking for more natural, healthy foods—animals that are well treated and food grown without synthetic and harmful pesticides, herbicides, and fertilizers. Urban farming opens the door to a more sustainable community.
