Quail

One of the earliest accounts of quail as food dates from approximately 1500 BC!  Our quail are prodigious layers, beginning to do so at just 37 days old.  By six weeks, the males are ready for the table.  With a dressed weight of 5-6 ounces, it takes two quail for one serving.  They make a delectable meal.  (See this recipe for an idea of how exotic your next barbecue could be!)  

These quail are classified Coturnix coturnix (coturnix being the Latin word for quail) and are also known as Japanese, Egyptian, or Pharaoh Quail.  We raise a jumbo variety.

See the table below for products we normally offer.  Our growing season for 2023 has concluded.  We intend to have quail and eggs available again in 2024.
