Pappa Bear's Happy Hens
What will you be bringing to the market this year?
Organic, Non-GMO, and North Georgia Mountain Forest fed Happy Chicken Eggs.
How frequently will you be at the market?
How did your company get started?
Our founder, Papa Bear, has loved birds of all kinds since he was a little boy. At the age of 8 years old, he raised over a thousand chickens by himself, providing eggs and joy to his community. When all of us crossed paths Papa Bear shared his love of birds with us, set us up with close to 200 organically fed baby chicks and right before he crossed over to the other side our happy hens started laying the happiest chicken eggs we’ve ever tasted.
What do you wish people knew about your product?
I wish people could see how happy of a life our chickens truly live – they feed off and roam the land all day long, breathing in fresh North Georgia mountain air up here in East Ellijay, Georgia. Since we can’t bring everyone to our farm, one of our goals will be to always bring a piece of it down to the market with us. Our hens are also fed an all organic and non-GMO diet by their moms and dads – Alisha, Sylina, Bill, and Thomas.
What question do you never get sick of customers asking?
What’s your story?? We love talking about Papa Bear and our Happy Hens!
Your favorite story about your company or the market?
Up to this point, our favorite part of the market would be coming in on opening day with a tent much larger than was acceptable. Everyone at the market was quick to bust our chops in a loving and playful way - one of Papa Bear’s favorite pastimes. We felt right at home!
What is one surprisingly awesome way to use your product?
One surprisingly awesome way to use our product is to wash and soften your hands with a freshly cracked egg – totally kidding. Although the possibilities are endless when it comes to such happy chicken eggs, so we look forward to hearing about any new angles we haven’t purposed our eggs for!
Do you have any recommended recipes or ways to use your products?
Alisha makes a mean egg salad – we’d tell you the recipe but then we’d have to… you know… lol. One day we’ll bring some!
