Farm Fresh Eggs - $4/doz
BOOKED UP through Summer 2010!
You won't believe these eggs until you taste them. They shells
are twice as thick as storebought. The yolks are practically orange
and the whites are firm and tender at the same time. The flavor
is more earthy - is that a flavor?? - than you're used to and knowing
where they came from makes it even more satisfying. Our clients can order
a dozen or half dozen at half price.
These are probably the most spoiled, blissed-out chickens you've
ever met. They start their day with a generous handful of organic
chicken scratch laced with oyster shell and grit for strong shells
and healthy gullets. Mornings are spent busily unearthing every
bug, worm or treat there is between the hen house and the person
house. The girls will periodically sneak back into the house and
lay a beautiful brown egg, then rush to get back to "work".
Afternoons are largely spent lounging under the bamboo or dusting
themselves in my flower boxes. There is an occasional field trip
to the neighbor's yard (bad chickies!!). After they dry off from
being squirted with the hose, they get back to looking for treats.
When I get home they follow me around while I do chores and usually
get something to snack on while we're out and about. They enjoy
chasing after the cats and telling me about their day. Then, when
it starts to get dark, they squawk their way up to the roost and
turn in for the night. What a life!
