    Good Eggs Are Hard to Find...

    Shop Now
    So I go to my local Trader Joe's and I got the the local Eggs section, and what do I find?

    "Free Range eggs!" Fed "Only Vegetarian Diet"

    Which consist of:

    Soy, Corn, and Natural Food.


    where can I find eggs fed on natural grass?

    At a farm! When you find said farm, check out the hens. Are they pecking around for bugs? What are they being fed to supplement the worms and grubs they are hunting for?

    They really can be hard to find depending on where you live! Have you looked on Eatwild.com yet?

    A lady at work sells me 10 true free range eggs every Monday, and I can get them on my way home from work at another place who also sell free range duck eggs, awesome!
    Do what you love and do it often. If you don't like something, change it. if you don't like your job, quit. If you don't have enough time, stop watching tv. If you are looking for the love of your life, stop, they will be waiting for you when you start doing the things you love. Stop over analyzing, life is simple. When you eat, appreciate every last bite. Some opportunities only come once, seize them.

    One option, based on local ordinances, is to raise your own chickens. With some good options available on how to keep them in fresh pickings, you can have good daily eggs. Add omega 3 to their feed for an extra boost.

    I'm no farmer but surely there aren't any chickens anywhere that eat only grass?

    No. Chickens are scavengers. They'll eat bugs, table scraps, anything they like, but they aren't cows.

    BTW, even the best pastured, truly free-roaming hale and hearty chickens eating bugs and a healthful diet will sometimes have some grain supplement.

    Google the Mother Earth News articles on pastured eggs, there's about half a dozen of them from over the past 6 years. Interesting stuff.

    Not my first choice for anything, but they do have properly fed chicken eggs
    They also have a pastured butter that may be superior to Kerrygold.

    Yeah, the Organic Valley Pasture Butter is great stuff.
