Eggs

Have you ever enjoyed farm-fresh eggs? They are a true culinary delight! With their vibrant, deep golden yolks and rich flavor, once you try them, you’ll never go back to regular eggs. Our hens work year-round, contributing not only by laying delicious eggs but also by supporting the farm’s ecosystem. They roam freely, naturally fertilize the soil, and help control pests.

FAQ

Q: Is it safe to store eggs outside of the fridge? A: Yes, unwashed eggs can be stored safely at room temperature for several days or even a couple of weeks, as they are protected by the bloom. Unwashed refrigerated for 2-3 months.

Q: What is bloom? A: Bloom is the natural coating on the eggshell, acting like nature’s lubricant. It helps the egg slide out of the hen and dries almost instantly to form a protective layer on the porous shell.

Q: How should I clean eggs? A: If you prefer to clean eggs, use warm water without soap, vinegar, or chemicals just before using them. If you intend to wash all of them at once, store them in the fridge because cleaning removes the bloom.

Q: Why use cooler water? A: Hot water can cause an endothermic reaction, pulling bacteria into the egg through its porous shell.

Q: I’m concerned about finding baby chicks or embryos, are your eggs fertilized? A: We have a few roosters in our flock, so more than likely the eggs are fertilized. However, we gather eggs almost daily, so the likelihood of finding something growing inside is minimal. You may occasionally see a dark spot in the yolk or white. These spots are uncommon but can occur in both store-bought and farm-fresh eggs. Eggs with spots are safe to eat, but you can remove the spot if you prefer.
