All natural, fresh brown eggs. Nothing comes close to eggs from the local farm. Our hens are fed with clean and natural foods – wheat, barley and oats, with additional oyster shells for extra calcium during the winter months.
Spring, summer and fall the hens roam free in the yard and fill up with bugs, worms and grass in addition to their grains.
We sell eggs when we have extra, so send us an e-mail to check availability.

Do you know the difference between washed and non-washed eggs?
If not – read this article (link). We have chosen not to wash our eggs.
The average egg in the grocery store is 6 weeks old by the time you buy it.
Fresh unwashed eggs are coated with a light layer of a natural sealing agent called “bloom”. Unwashed eggs will last a very long time when properly stored. Using refrigeration, the unwashed eggs can last up to five months. If kept at room temperature they still taste great after 4-6 weeks.
A large free range egg contains 70 calories.
Eggs are a high-quality source of protein – they contain a significant amount of all of
the essential amino acids. The healthy human body needs a regular supply of protein
to replace and renew the proteins being broken down in the cells, organs and muscles.
Daily needs vary depending on one’s age and sex. Most healthy adult women need
46 g of protein per day and most healthy adult men need 56 g of protein per day.
One large free range egg contains 6 g of protein.
Most of the fat in a free range egg is found in its yolk. One large free range egg
contains 4.5 g of total fat and 1.5 g of saturated fat. As an animal protein, eggs are
a source of saturated fat. High intakes of saturated fat increase your blood cholesterol
levels and risk of heart disease. On a 2,000 calorie diet you should limit your daily
saturated fat intake to less than 15.5 g per day.
One free range chicken egg contains 215 mg of cholesterol and is considered a high
cholesterol food. Healthy people should limit their total cholesterol intake to less than
300 mg a day and people with high blood cholesterol levels should limit their intake
to less than 200 mg a day. Like fat, most of the cholesterol can be found in the yolk
of the chicken egg.
In addition to being a good source of protein, eggs also contain vitamins including
vitamin A, vitamin D and vitamin B 12. One large egg contains 270 IU of vitamin A,
40 IU of vitamin D and 0.45 mcg of vitamin B 12. Vitamin A is necessary for immune
and eye health. Vitamin D helps bone mineralization. Vitamin B 12 plays a role in
red blood cell formation.
