The Costales Nature Farms in Majayjay, Laguna is also exclusively producing organic eggs for a client that also buys his culinary herbs, leafy greens and sweet corn.
The chickens are very tame, and they lay big eggs that fetch as much as P15 apiece.
The chickens are fed with their own feed formulation consisting of corn grits, fine rice bran, copra meal, soybean meal, livestock lime and fermented hog feed. To prevent disease, EM or effective micro-organisms is added to their drinking water. They are also given an immune booster consisting of a concoction of garlic, ginger and molasses. Ronald says this is anti-bacterial.
