Local Egg-Ventures

I know I just recently gushed about all the great local food around here, but I just had to post today because I was so excited…

Today I finally got to check out one of the farms on our street that sells eggs from their driveway (there are two of them). In their driveway was a little shed with a tiny, cube-shaped refrigerator. Inside were a few cartons of eggs, each with a hand-written note giving the price (based on egg size). There was also a little glass bowl into which one puts the money. It’s called the honour system – you just pull up, get your eggs, leave your money, and drive away…how cool is that?

I came away with a dozen large, organically raised, free-range eggs from a farm just down the road…for almost half the price of store-bought ones from non-local, commercial suppliers. I am one happy camper!
