The light is returning, which means Spring is on its way. This month, as the natural world around us ramps up for the changing season, chickens will begin to lay more eggs. When you buy local eggs from pastured chickens you are getting good quality protein, high levels of omega-3 fatty acids and valuable minerals. Even though a $7 a dozen price tag can be shocking, just think about it as less than 50 cents a portion, which makes local eggs the most affordable pastured protein per serving. Find out more shopping tips, serving ideas and nutrition facts about local eggs in our information sheet. Try Chef Robin's Egg Drop Soup to warm you up on chilly, stormy Spring days.
