Lil’s Farm – Yolky Dokey Eggs (#040)

Lil’s Farm – Yolky Dokey Eggs | Somerville

In February 2018, our beautiful daughter Lily Grace, was killed in a tragic 4WD accident at the age of 20. In the long grief-stricken days that followed a vision was born out of the deep love that a mother has for her daughter. On Lily’s bucket list was a dream to own her own bush block, raise pasture-fed hens, sell their free-range eggs whilst operating a beauty salon on the side. Within a few weeks of Lily’s death, we secured a lease on a 50-acre property in Somerville and the Yolky Dokey pasture-raised egg dream for Lil was to become a reality.

Lil’s 50-acre Farm has 1450 hens in 6 chicken caravans. The caravans have automated doors enabling the chooks to roam free during the day and close them in safely at night time. Their second line of defense, four alpacas and maremma dogs as livestock guardians to protect the brood. We would like the number of chickens to remain fewer than 100 hens per hectare, as we believe it is the key to both sustainable farming and ensuring that the girls have plenty of space to live a happy and healthy life.

We supply local businesses and have our farm gate open from 9am – 1pm on at Saturdays.

Tuerong Farm (#046)

Tuerong Farm

Tuerong farm is the only farm on the Peninsula to grow and mill heritage, ancient and modern cereal grains. We also produce pulses as part of ourcrop rotations, along with grass fed beef, eggs and honey.

  • At the moment we have available three different winter white wheats/flours and Red wheat/flour. The wheat hasn’t been sitting in a shed for years, it hasn’t been roller milled, it hasn’t sat on a shelf for years – it is stoneground and it tastes fresh and is packed with flavour and nutrients.
  • We just harvested a malting barley yesterday for the beer makers out there. Rather than malt I will steam and roll so brewers can readily use and extract the flavour.
  • All crops are grown without the use of systemic sprays and cover crops like fava beans and buckwheat add further diversity to our ecosystem and our offerings.
  • For orders of flour, grains, and other products please call mobile 0419 307 934.
