FREE-RANGE EGG SHARE

  Need a quick, nutritious breakfast high in protein and omega-3s? You can scramble an egg in under 5 minutes and jump into your workday with alertness and staying power.

Several customers have been getting our eggs for over twenty years! Our customers love our eggs for their rich taste and texture. After 5 years away from home, we gave our youngest son and his wife eggs to take home last Thanksgiving. He called us, “Mom, I’m shocked! All those years growing up I never realized how much flavor farm eggs have. They’re delicious!”

The hens have free range of the farm during the day, and are shut up at night for their own safety from predators. They relish bugs, worms, garden extras, vegetarian table scraps, and layer feed.  They particularly love fruit which drops from the orchard trees!

   Eggs are washed and put in cartons late on Friday for pickup on Saturday or during open hours the next week. Eggs will be brown, white, or green. The hen's genetic makeup determines what color shell all her eggs will have for her whole life. Her recent diet determines how orange the yolk is, and the egg's freshness determines how tall the white stands up in your pan. By the end of the season, a high-producing hen has depleted her stores of calcium and carotene, resulting in weaker shells and paler yolks. 

   Full-season egg shares, which are sold starting in February, run from March to November. A share is generally a dozen eggs per week, but can be more, usually in early summer, or less, usually at the end of the season. You can order multiple shares, or a half-season share for the first half of the season.

   Limited shares are available. After shares have been filled, extra dozen-egg cartons are available by the each.

   There are three ways to order egg shares this year. First, on the "Order Form" page you will find a downloadable order form to print, fill out, and send us with a check. Second, you can email your order and have your bank send a check. Third, you can order online by clicking here: GET EGG SHARE Online ordering costs more, since both the card company and the website host take their cuts.

 Pickup is at the farm only; no shipping or delivery.

   You can't get free-range eggs any fresher!
