  • 6 a dozen?

    Would you pay that? during the winter when I can't get eggs at the farmers market, and days like today when I can't make it, I have to go to the grocery store. Thats the price for the pastured eggs, with yolks that are almost orange. I'm wondering whether I'd be crazy to pay that, but I really do value my health and pastured eggs are better....

    thoughts?

    that is very expensive indeed! Are regular organic eggs any cheaper. You could also see if there are any omega 3 eggs out there too. Perhaps not as high in quality as the pastured, but still good.

      yes as a second option I would go with omega 3s. I saw ones that said progressive pastured, bought them. THey had light yellow yolks and the inside said fed all natural grain. disappointing.Organic eggs are pretty much all fed grain/soy/whatever so I don't look to them as being high quality.

        Ya, in San Francisco they are pricey too - $8/dozen! These days I settle for the omega 3 eggs for $4/dzn. Those pastured eggs were super-good though.

          I do omega 3 when I can't get farm stand pastured.

            I paid $6.00 a dozen for guaranteed pastured eggs at the fancy organic farmer's market near my parents' house in NY . . . and I could not tell the slightest difference in terms of taste or appearance between those eggs and the $2.00 or $2.50 a dozen regular local farm eggs I get at farmer's markets there and where I live in Iowa. So it would be really hard to get myself to spend that again, no matter how many magic Omega 3's they had. (Well, the next week I paid $6.00 again for duck eggs, but at least they were a novelty.)

            Fortunately where I live our local dairy has an outlet that sells local farm eggs all year round.

              wow 6$ a dozen!! thatd be like 18$ a week for me. I am poor so i gotta settle for 1.30$ a dozen conventional eggs. If they taste/look better they might be worth it if you can afford it.

                a timely topic. does anyone have any links or references to reasearch showing a clearcut health,saftey,ingredient advantage of free range,pastured organic or omega 3 labeled eggs. the little data i have seen,admittedly kinda from the CW side,says not. my tendency is to believe this. there is scant,if any, 3rd party,including FDA, supervision of these terms,at least in any real sense. we all know how easily offical FDA and local health rules can be palyed with. thoughts,research?

                      I pay it when I can't get them fresh from the farm. Eggs are a big part of my diet, I take them seriously haha

                        The farm where I get my beef has reasonably priced eggs - $4, but they are pretty far. The other farm I get my eggs from charges $6.

                          I pay that much for my eggs and they aren't even pastured
                          The nice part about being a pessimist is that you are constantly being proven right or pleasantly surprised.

                            &quot;not a chance&quot;?

                            does this mean you don't believe it (parity between store bought and whatever "natural" label is attached to your eggs) based on personal experience,labs,research,studies whatever or from "feelings"? if it can be shown or rationally inferred that one product is superior-likely based on cost/benefit considerations-then i would like to be proved of the beam here,if that turns out to be the case.

                              I remember reading something about this on a blog recently and googled around.
