About Us / Misfit Farm History: Farmer Karla Mejia and her husband, Harles, raise Animal Welfare Approved laying hens at 4-acre Misfit Farm, near Salisbury, North Carolina. The Mejia’s flock consists of about 60 chickens of mixed breeds, including Rhode Island Red, Americauna, Easter Eggers, and Australorp, providing a regular supply of tasty, healthful eggs for their local customers. \nKarla grew up raising and eating her own eggs, beef, and pork, so farming in a way that would produce high-quality food for her family and her customers was an important goal. “When we set up Misfit Farm, we knew we wanted to provide our customers with wholesome eggs from happy birds,” she explains. As a veterinarian, Karla’s focus on the highest standards of animal welfare is equally important: “Allowing our animals to live naturally and express their innate behaviors is absolutely central to the way we farm.” \nWhen asked about joining the program, Karla said: “It was important to me to join Animal Welfare Approved to show people that there are real alternatives to industrial farming, and that these alternatives are better for the animals, the farmer, and the consumer.”\nMisfit Farm eggs are available for purchase at the farm.
