What we’re about:

Values: We want to provide healthy, delicious, beautiful food to our neighbors. We believe chickens should get to be fully chickens. We are Certified Animal Welfare Approved by A Greener World.

Where are we?

  • The Joyful Wren farm stand is open again! Open daily from 7:30ish to dusk. Feel free to call/text 312-715-7627 to verify hours or what we have in stock. Certain items are kept in stock, but you can always pre-order online ahead of time to access anything we sell.
  • We will be at the Champaign Farmers Market on Tuesdays from 3pm-6pm starting May 16th. We plan to go weekly. You can pre-order any of our items and pick up at the farmers market if that’s easier than coming to the farm stand–just order online: joyfulwren.com
  • You can still find our eggs at Prairie Fruits Farm & Creamery farm store or through their online ordering. We value their commitment to humane treatment of animals (they’ve been an Animal Welfare Approved farm for over a decade!) Check their website for updates so you can pick up our eggs and some of their delicious goat cheeses or gelato at the same time. You can also buy their feta through our online store–we pick up from them on Fridays.
  • We do not plan to go to the Urbana Farmers Market this summer, but if you go, you can find our eggs at Common Ground Food Cooperative. Common Ground is located at Lincoln Square Mall on the east side. They’re open daily from 7:30 to 9pm.
  • Pre-ordering for farm stand pickup or ordering delivery to your home or the farmers market is available through our ordering page or the following link –

"Dapper doodle doos & ducks: Photography and Poultry Adventures" The photographer, Shawn Carlson, a white woman with long hair, a t-shirt and jeans smiles at the camera in front of a wall of her work: poultry photos with clothes or props.

Our friend, Shawn Carlson, takes photos of her chicks, chickens, and ducks with whimsical costumes or accessories. Come browse some of her refrigerator magnets in our farm stand, or order them from our online store. In addition to the magnets we offer, Shawn can have her photos made into a canvas, cards, puzzle, towel, pot holder, etc.–just contact her through her website: https://www.dapperdoodledoos.com/
