Don’t you want locally laid?

Do you like eggs? I do too. I eat a soft-boiled egg every day, and I buy them from the Whole Foods Co-op because I don’t know what shit they put into mass produced eggs and I want organic food in my body. But I hear pasture-raised eggs are even better than organic! Less fat, healthier, etc. So … two friends of mine have launched an egg production farm, called Locally Laid Eggs, where they are tending hens that are laying eggs! And they are selling those eggs! Yum.

You can buy them at Whole Foods Co-op and at Northern Waters Smokehaus, if you want to cook up those beauties yourself. Or, if you order eggs at Zeitgeist Cafe or Duluth Grill, you can ask to make sure your eggs have been Locally Laid, because I hear they are using Locally Laid eggs these days.

Oh, and they have nice T-shirts that friends of mine — even elsewhere — are already clamoring to get their hands on. Because everyone dreams of getting locally laid.

So, keep your eye out, you might get lucky and get Locally Laid. Let me know what you think.

It reminds me of an ad for Berkeley Farms milk when I was a kid, “Cows in Berkeley?” Never mind.

  1. How much is a dozen?

    My mom raises laying hens out in Lakewood, but she’s going through a terrible patch of predation, so the eggs are a bit few and far between lately. Happy to find a backup plan!

  2. Allow me to rephrase:

    How much does a dozen eggs cost?

    I know how many eggs are in a dozen. : )

  5. I’ve heard from friends who tried these eggs that they are absolutely delicious. $4.99/dozen is well worth the price for me of knowing I’m eating quality eggs that were laid by local hens.

  6. They are on sale right now at the Co-op for $3.79.

  7. Maybe some of you can add your two cents to this, and as I know eggs are a vegetarian’s last refuge, and as I’m not trying to hurt any nice-named company like this, but CNN just published an article equating eating one egg yolk per day as being equivalent to smoking, that the cholesterol is equivalent to a depth charge on your heart, and you shouldn’t have any more than one a week, which is about 14 less than I’ve been averaging. I also think the eggs have been hindering my heart’s ability to smoke and drink, which is what I’m getting at here. Really, it’s hard to doubt the findings, unless they were sponsored by egg substitute. I know, you’re all going to say, everything in moderation, but that’s not real science. Doesn’t one egg a week sound a little light? I always knew there was a reason your dog prefers the yoke, leaves the white.

  9. Locally laid organic eggs -- Wednesday UMD Farmer’s Market (1:30 to 4:30 p.m.) from two local vendors. Just over $3 (but under $4) for a dozen from either vendor. Fresh that day.

  10. A bit off topic, but does anyone around here have a decent connection to grass-fed beef and/or grass-fed milk. Both are getting more and more difficult to find. And no, the co-op doesn’t seem to carry the milk anymore.

  11. I just bought some grass fed milk at the Coop. I’d have to double check the carton at home, but I’m sure of it (?) — it’s the brand with the drawing on the front of the little kid petting the cow, as if to say “Don’t worry, he is my pet, I won’t hurt him.”

  12. Those are the “Organic Valley” milks and it’s what we normally buy. It’s just “organic”(?) but isn’t grass fed.

    Incidentally, I keep a Sharpie close to the fridge so I can draw little word balloons over the drawings on those cartons. The last one was the cow telling the kid not to touch him.

  13. “Organic Valley” and “Ivy Farms” (available @ Old World) are from the same creamery in Hastings…and Ivy’s a good buck (at least) cheaper.
