Our farm fresh eggs are refrigerated upon collection and will need to be returned to refrigeration upon delivery. Your delivery will include a week gathered date for your reference.
When refrigerated, your farm fresh eggs will be good for three months after the week they were gathered. When stored at 30℉ (0℃) eggs can last up to nine months. Eggs should never be stored below 28℉ (-2℃).
If you're unsure about whether to use an egg, place it in a tall glass of water. If the egg floats, throw it out. If it sinks to the bottom of the glass, you can still cook with it.
Our laying flock includes Orpington, Leghorn, Faverolle, Rhode Island Red, and Plymouth Rock chickens.
Our flock is growing! Six Buff Orpingtons, two Easter Eggers, and an ISA brown chick joined our flock earlier this year and will begin laying later this fall.
Meet our chickens!
Most chickens lay between 200-250 eggs per year, with the best layers averaging 250-280 eggs annually.
Optimal laying breeds include Plymouth Barred Rock and Rhode Island Red, which lay up to 300 eggs annually. All chickens are most productive during their first three years of life and when conditions are optimal.
We collect eggs at least twice daily to ensure eggs never spend more than four hours between laying and refrigeration.
Egg laying is not a quiet affair! Hens have an initial nesting call when they first start laying, which is when the flock rooster starts squawking. Typically, once one hen begins laying, others join her.
After laying, a hen makes her laying cackle, consisting of short, sharp chatter, signaling the egg is ready for picking.
You can expect your carton of eggs to be full of a variety of shell colors. Our hens lay a blend of olive, brown, and off-white egg shells. The color differential has no impact on the flavor of the eggs.
Egg shell color comes from the hen’s skins pigment. When laying, calcium comes out of the hen’s bones to create the egg. Our chickens receive regular calcium supplements to replace the calcium drained during laying.
Inside, the egg yolks vary as well. Our egg yolks are typically a brighter orange than you’ll find in grocery store eggs. The egg yolk color comes from plant pigment and shifts with the season.
