Railroad Bill’s serves eggs from Raccoon Forks Farms

Railroad Bill’s is now proudly serving farm fresh eggs from our pals at nearby Raccoon Forks Farms.

The cage-free, pastured hens at Raccoon Forks Farms lay rich, large, delicious brown eggs in Redfield and Runnells.

The eggs are packaged on site at the Farms and delivered directly to Railroad Bill’s and other restaurants and retail outlets throughout central Iowa.

Railroad Bill’s and Raccoon Forks Farms are both Raccoon Forks Microbusinesses, owned and operated by Optimae LifeServices to create jobs for individuals with disabilities and mental illness.

Railroad Bill’s prides itself on making many of our menu items from scratch, our fresh and locally roasted L & N Roast coffee, and now serving fresh farm eggs from Raccoon Forks Farms.

Raccoon Forks Farms newsletter – July 1, 2019

Dear Friends and CSA Partners –

Welcome to July! Many of you have let us know that you’ll be out of town this week – we hope you’re enjoying well-deserved vacations!

Please remember that due to the holiday this week, we’ll be delivering CSA shares tomorrow (Tuesday)! If you won’t be able to pick up your share tomorrow and you haven’t already made arrangements, please have a friend or family member pick it up for you.

Fruit shares update: For those of you who ordered a fruit add-on share, we believe that we’ll be starting the fruit shares next week! We’ve been in touch with our friends at Berry Patch Farm, and that’s their latest estimate. If there’s any change, we’ll let you know in next week’s newsletter.
