Buying local eggs

Boys and eggs
Which is which?

I cracked the egg open and was struck right away by the yolk’s rich orange color.

I have wanted to find a source for locally grown, non-factory farmed eggs and meat, and I finally bought some eggs from a local farm today. I had a nice talk with James of the Potrepka Farm in Plantsville, CT. While his chickens are not free range, he said he keeps them in a large coop and lets them range as much as possible. If he went completely free range, foxes and hawks would get them, he said.

The eggs were noticeably different when side by side with the eggs I got from Stop and Shop. In addition to the difference in their yolks, the shell was harder to crack, too.

Keep your sunny side up
The Potrepka Farm’s eggs are available at the Plantsville Pharmacy for $3.00 a dozen.
