Eggs for Sale!

by

We are now getting full-sized eggs, still mixed in with pullet eggs as our hens are of varying ages.  We have sold our first few eggs to our food scrap subscribers and will be selling them at one or two nearby local outlets as well in the coming weeks.  And good eggs are good for you!  See http://www.incredibleegg.org/health.html for more information on egg nutrition.  Our eggs are not certified organic, but meet many of the criteria of organic eggs–organic grains only, no antibiotics, hormones or other feed additives, no beak trimming (a horrible practice!), pasture-raised, free-ranging life-style.   For some information on the difference between organic eggs and “conventional” eggs see http://ezinearticles.com/?Supermarket-Eggs-vs-Organic-Eggs-From-Free-Ranging-Chickens&id=1546825 and http://trusted.md/blog/vreni_gurd/2006/12/01/conventional_vs_organic_vs_free_range_meat_poultry_eggs_and_dairy.  An Internet search will reveal many other sources of information pointing to the superior qualities of organic methods in the production of eggs.
