in-store:  EGGS

Each week we receive eggs from several local farms.  All of the eggs we offer are from pastured, well-fed, free-roaming chickens and ducks.  The birds have access to grassy yards and pastures, full of bugs and greens, as well as sunshine, fresh water, and our breezy trade winds.  Their food is often supplemented with fruits, veggies, and greens from the farms where they're raised.

 

 

Eggs are a seasonal product.  Spring and Summer months offer the longest days and greatest egg availability.  Fall and Winter days are much shorter and eggs are more scarce.  During these cooler and shorter days, most chickens go through a molting season, during which they lose old feathers and grow new ones.  This molting process takes a lot of extra energy and nutrients, so the birds usually lack the extra resources needed to produce eggs.  During this time, eggs availability can be very limited.
