I was driving along one day and noticed a sign that said “Organic Eggs $1.00” in front of a farmhouse on our road. Having never bought fresh organic eggs straight from the farm before, I stopped to get myself a dozen.
I was met at the door by Virginia, who said “How many dozen, hun?” I said “One, please!”. (Heck, for a buck, I guess I could have gotten a couple, but I thought I’d see what the whole farm-fresh experience was all about.)
Well before I knew it, I was being handed an array of brown, white and blue eggs that were busting the seams of the carton. They were big and beautiful!
OK, so how did they taste, compared to their store-bought counter parts? There was no comparison. They were so deliciously creamy and rich, with large bright golden yolks.
A few days later, I knocked on Virginia’s door and said “Two dozen, please!”. She looked at me like she knew I was hooked. “Wanna see the babies?”, she asked. Why not? So the next thing I knew, I was taking a tour of the house where the” girls” who lay my beautiful eggs reside.
Let me tell you, these girls have it made. Not only are they cage-free, but they have the run of the farm, nibbling on various goodies from the garden and roaming till their heart’s content.
