I am Vikki, one of the owners of Rosemary Ridge Farm in Elizabeth, CO.  On June 17 2016, I was diagnosed with breast cancer.  It was caught early, during a routine mammogram, so the prognosis is good. However, I do need surgery and radiation treatments afterwards (thank god, no chemo unless they find something during the surgery) but still, the recovery process will be long, painful and exhausting.

So so sorry to post this, but we need to sell the farm and move into the city to be closer to doctors, hospitals and treatment centers. Already diagnosed with non-alcoholic liver cirrhosis this past October, I’m exhausted every day. I just can’t do this farm any more, and need to de-stress my life. I hope you understand.

I have already had two calls already this morning (before 10 a.m.!) for products like goat’s milk, and really can’t keep jumping up to answer that phone line.  I took off the farm-related posts from this website.  Sorry if I missed any.

Please please forgive me. If I could refer you to another farm, I would. Meanwhile, thank you for listening, and please add me and my wonderful 19 year old special needs son in your prayers.

Again, thank you. 

p.s.: We have all of our chickens and one blue slate turkey hen for sale still. If you are interested, please e-mail vikkibook at yho

Eggs for sale

UPDATED: We are closing the farm (see July 1, 2016 post) but have a HUGE inventory of chicken (and quail) eggs. Please e-mail (vikkibooks at yho) ASAP because we are selling our flock.

The bird / avian flu is demolishing chicken flocks all over the world.  Thousands and thousands of chickens are dying or culled because others in their flock have the flu.   Each dead chicken means one less meat bird, or quite a few dozen eggs to eat.

Then there's the flooding in the middle of the USA, and the drought in California.  Corn and other grains are either not being planted, or planted and either dying or frying in the fields. What little is grown .. will it go for human consumption, or to feed the remaining food animals?

Many farmers and ranchers are concerned about the lack of feed, and are harvesting / culling their meat animals now.  Yes, there will be a sudden influx of cheap meat, but not too far from now, the meat will be scarce and VERY expensive.

Back to eggs...

Go to a grocery, and chances are you'll find a sign in the egg section saying there is a limit (rationing) as to how many dozens of eggs you can buy at a time.  OR the price has increased double or triple it's normal price.

People are "flocking" to us little farmers for eggs. Some dishonest little farmers are taking advantage of the situation and charging $10 a dozen for eggs.  Huh?  I can't believe people would do that.  No, we won't change our prices that much until the price of feed might demand a SMALL increase. 

However, if our chickens continue to get stolen, we MIGHT change out prices to include the security procedures and items we'll need to install.

Our chickens and turkeys are fed rice, oats, black oil sunflower seeds, flax seeds, oyster shell and free-range on grass and weeds and bugs.

We have 15 laying hens who give us between 8 and 12 eggs a day.  We have 1 laying turkey who gives an eggs 3-4 times a week.  Each chicken egg dozen is $3.50 for mixed sizes and mixed colors.  All eggs are unwashed and unrefrigerated.  We reduce the cost by $.25 if you return the carton in good condition.

MUST e-mail for eggs.

We are starting to raise quail for eggs and meat.  It takes about 3 quail eggs to equal 1 chicken egg, but there's more yolk-to-white ratio. Very delicious. 

Notice the black and brown spots on the eggs ... that is completely natural! It's not poo... just what the egg really looks like.

Some people who are allergic to chicken eggs, can eat quail eggs with no problems. Isn't that wonderful?

UPDATED July 1, 2016: We ARE keeping the quail (legal in Colorado to keep, even in an apartment as long as it's ok with apartment complex). Quail egg prices are $3.50 per dozen, which is low ($4.50 to 6.00 per dozen). We have lots as of July 1, 2016. Our quail are raised on basically the same foods as the chicken, with the addition of greens (kelp, spinach and parsley), and mealworms.

If you are interested in getting on our customer list for quail eggs, please contact me. First come, first served.


As a side note, we'll be getting back into goat milk shares again.  Stay tuned!


The series begins!


Driven by a need for human blood and a love for modern technology, Jovan and Ivana opened a diner. Humans enjoy made-to-order fast foods in a funky atmosphere with free wi-fi and complimentary drink refills, with techno music lightly drifting from the jukebox. And after Jovan clinically draws blood from the healthiest of the humans, the vampires drift in for their feast. Who will they choose next? The solitary man gnawing on a turkey burger, or the arguing father and son?

Letters from Weslee's Warriors

Hi, folks.  Remember that news story local Channel 9 did on Weslee?  http://www.9news.com/rss/story.aspx?storyid=334516 ).  Just in time, it brought Weslee letters, get well cards and postcards, drawings and even a couple of gifts! Having me open the mail while he was in the hospital having his brain surgeries helped to lift his spirits a little bit.  (Heavy pain killers, pain and confusion ruled his life for about 2 weeks.)

Pic to right is some of his letters.

Now he is struggling to find a new normal... With difficulties speaking, very little memory, huge vision problems and major side effects to the many meds that he is on..., well, we need your help again.

He is so depressed. Side effect of the meds (we hope).

Please send him letters again, telling him not to give up. Remember, he can't really read anymore, so write/type big.

Send to:

Weslee Lawrence
44011 Morning Star Ct.
Elizabeth, CO. 80107

P.s. I want to compile all of his letters into a book to help raise money for his medical bills. We hope you don't mind.

BTW, we have 5 new baby chicks! Wonderful mama hatched our eggs.
