Around here, local farmers will tell you personally that they grow using
organic or biodynamic methods but are not certified (though a few are).
I pay $3-3.75/dozen for eggs that are far superior to store bought eggs.
Bob, they are worth the extra money. The eggs are healthier and do taste
better. Look at the color of the yolk. Farm eggs usually have an orange or
brighter colored yolk than eggs from the store.
So excited (have I said that already?!) that we have chickens again.
Youngest son returned home from being away for almost a week and he is
eggs-tatic with me! (Sorry for that). ;)
