In light of my post about Gingerich’s organic eggs a few weeks ago, this post is fantastic. Thanks to Rachel of rachels-table.com for this enlightened post!

  1. This is so true!! My husband and I bought grocery store brand eggs for almost 4 years when we first got married. they looked bland, tasted bland, and frankly were not that great and still pretty pricey. Then we watched Jamie Oliver’s special on Chickens and eggs on the Food Network and were blown away!! We started buying organic free range eggs at twice the cost, not easy but necessary, especially with a little one at home. Then my Father-in-Law started growing his own free range, grain fed chickens; no steroids, no hormones, no antibiotics. He then started gathering the eggs. we now receive about 18 eggs a week for free. They are large, beautiful, tasty eggs that never leave me feeling that “iickkk I just ate eggs” feeling. When we could not get these eggs afew months ago my husband went to the store and picked up the grocery store brand (hey it’s just once right? what harm could it do?) They looked bad, they tasted bad, and they made me feel bad, plus they were about half the size of the free range, home grown eggs we had been getting. So, never going back again, once you got it good you can’t go back, I am now egg-spoiled rotten. 😉

    • Wow! I have to admit that I have a hard time, having been in the chicken barn, disconnecting that smell from the actual eggs. When I fry them, no problem. Boiled is still a bit touch-and-go for me, but I won’t go back if I can help it!

      Courtney – did you read my post about Gingerichs’ organic eggs a few weeks ago?
