Let’s talk about EGGS.
Eggs are a staple food item, in most anyone’s kitchen. They are quite popular for breakfast: as scrambled, over-easy, hard-boiled, poached, or omelet style! They make incredible egg salads for lunch, and are called for in most baking recipes. And let’s not forget most every mother’s favorite backup plan; Breakfast for Dinner!
We all know that eggs are good for your overall health! But did you know thatfarm eggs are even better for you? It’s true. Farm fresh eggs are higher in omega-3, and higher in vitamins A, D, B-12, and E! And they are also lower in fat and cholesterol.
Our ‘girls’ will be ready to start laying eggs by the end of the year. But long before we were keeping chickens ourselves, we had to buy eggs. When needing to buy them from the store, we wanted to be sure the eggs we bought were the best available to us! And we found them to be Nellie’s Cage Free Eggs. Nellie’s Cage-Free Eggs are free from antibiotics and hormones, raised on small family farms, and are also Certified-Humane. In fact, Nellie’s were America’s first Certified Humane egg producer and the First “B-Corp Certified” farm.
They also offer Pete and Gerry’s Organic eggs, which are produced by Certified Humane cage free hens, also raised on small family farms, and they are fed exclusively organic grain, which is free of any pesticides or GMOs.
Another thing we love about Nellie’s is that they support little small flock farms, just like we do, and just as we are, now. We really love our chickens, as you all know! For those of you that care about animals and want to be able to trust that their eggs were raised without cruel factory farm conditions, you can count on Nellie’s for that, too.
So if you can’t manage to get local farm fresh eggs, and store bought are your only option, maybe you will want to consider Nellie’s Cage Free Eggs, too. They are truly a values-led company. That’s always a kind of company we want to support. Nellie’s is where both the chicken, and the egg, come first.
