AND... I got to meet her chickens-- whose eggs I eat. Awesome!
This is their coop.
Their eggs are golden, huge, and delicious because they get to live outside and eat grass and bugs instead of grain, which makes them happy.
I wondered what it was going to be like to eat an egg after I had met the chicken. I found out that it makes the eggs even more enticing.
Look at the freakin' size of that thing!!!
You can't get much fresher than that. I don't have a picture of a cracked egg, but my experience is that the yolks are a brighter yellow, and the whites less firm, than a store bought egg (and my opinion is that Heather's are more delicious, texture included). I hear that they bake really well, too. Unfortunately for YOU (unless you are lucky enough to either know Heather or hang out at my house enough for me to cook you breakfast ), Heather does not sell her eggs at the market... yet. But keep your eyes peeled, and hopefully someday soon you'll find a variety of products available from Cottonhill Farms. Heather and her husband not only have chickens, but an herb and veggie garden, a beginning apiary, and a goat (hmmm chevre anyone?)
