    We have named our farm but we're so small I wonder if it's just silly to do so? We have a flock of 17 (13 hens) and sell eggs. What do you think?

    I say Go for it!!! No hurt doing it.[​IMG]

    I watched a show called Coop Dreams where they went to a person's house who had around 20 chickens maybe more and they named their small farm. They even sold t-shirts and hats with the name. If anything it's for you and I think it's great idea. I wanna come up with a name for my farm of 4 hens and 2 quail. l don't plan on selling eggs but like to give them away for holidays, and bring fresh eggs to a elderly couple I care for. I thought about buying a few egg cartons and putting a nice stamp on them.

    What's the name?[​IMG]

    We call it Equally Yolked Farm. The bible tells us to be equally yoked in marriage and just thought it would be cute to make a little pun from that.
    I like the idea of tshirts and stuff, even if it's just for our family.
    Do you have any ideas for a name for yours?

    EY, I love the name of your little farm. I think that's awesome. All I do is sell eggs, and occasionally provide chicks. But, I have aspirations! Have put in a mini fruit orchard, want to get involved in making my own salves. I may or may not ever sell to the public, but, just for my own fun, I call my "farm" the "Little Town Farm". It's a play on words both for my location and my last name.

    The fruit orchard sounds great! And I like your farm name [​IMG]
    We definitely have some aspirations as well. Looking for about 20 acres to raise our own meat and looking forward to a large garden this year. Like you, it's primarily for our own consumption but I think we're going to participate in our town's farmers market this summer. Hope to get to know some more people [​IMG]

    Love the name and the reference!

    We've loosely called our place the Circle Lazy B for years (last name is Bell). I'd love to have a little brand type logo made up, but a lazy B in brand-type (on it's back) just looks like boobs to me [​IMG]. Not exactly the image I want to put out there.....once I get things going with selling more birds, I'd like to have someone do me a graphic image of an insect bee, kicking back in a lounge chair with a glass of tea or something....a Lazy Bee....I think that would be cute.

    I love the name! [​IMG] I haven't come up with a name yet. I was thinking about keeping it simple and keeping to my last name, Kraft Chicken Farm or something like that but your name and other members names is inspiring. I will have to think about it more.
