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.
