”We Just Don’t Like the Eggs from Grocery Stores Anymore...”
That's what our customers are saying. If you never tasted real fresh eggs you won’t
believe what you were missing.
Freshness and Feed make all the difference: Eggs in the grocery store aren’t “FRESH”. They are sold as fresh because they are not treated with any preservation method, but they are days to weeks old. Our chickens roam outside scratching for worms, bugs, seeds, grass, clover, herbs, and whatever they can find to supplement what we feed: chicken grains and lettuce leaves. This makes very tasty eggs rich in nutrients with a dark yellow yolk. Our eggs are not certified organic. But they are raised in the most sustainable and humane way getting only natural foods. And most importantly to us: Our chickens are happy and raised ethically.
We have only few roosters, therefore most of our eggs are not fertilized. This means, don't try to hatch a chick from our eggs. There's a high chance you will fail. Please check out our FAQ page were we shed light on many of the myths about chickens. See what our customers are saying about our eggs: Click here
How can you tell whether an egg is fresh?
Break and egg into a pan. A fresh egg has a small round yolk and a small raised white. Check for yourself. Our eggs are often only hours old when we sell them.
Did you know that eggs from hens raised on pasture compared to factory-farmed hens contain more of the good stuff and less of the bad stuff?
- 1/3 less cholesterol
- 1/4 less saturated fat
- 2/3 more vitamin A
- 2 times more omega-3 fatty acids
- 3 times more natural tocopherols (vitamin E)
- 7 times more beta carotene
How long can eggs store?
In nature, a female bird (hen, partridge, pheasant etc.) lays one egg per day into its nest and leaves the eggs at air temperature until the nest is full. This may take more than a week to complete. Only then does the bird start incubating the eggs. The eggs are designed to stay easily fresh for 14 days in any temperature because the egg shell is coated with a defensive protein barrier inhibiting the penetration of bacteria. Eggs you buy in the grocery store are all washed with detergent and the protein coat removed. They must be stored in the fridge to preserve their freshness.

HOW TO GET OUR EGGS:

THEFT ALERT: On July 1, 2014 two individuals stole a total of 7 dz eggs. July 2, 2014 another person stole 8 dz eggs.
We are very unhappy, because we trusted people, but we can't afford to lose a day's income to some crooks. This was not a single occurrence many times people didn't pay right.
We were about to quit the entire egg business, but that would be unfair to all of our loyal customers who appreciate farm fresh free range eggs. Almost every week a customer thanks us for making farm fresh food available to them. That's why we sell our eggs now exclusively close at the house where we can watch what's going on. It is still honor system.
We know, some of you are afraid of disturbing us and don't want to come up. Don't worry, please come up. We don't want our eggs to stay unsold either.
