Roadside Eggs

Does anyone by chance know of a decent, reliable source of farm-raised eggs in the area, outside of the the Whole Foods Co-op? I grew up in an area where the roadsides were dotted by eggs-for-sale signs. I recently moved back to Duluth, and am on the hunt for eggs again.

  1. This is turning into a real topic on the ol’ PDD. Here’s something from a few days ago:

    Don’t you want locally laid?

    Also, just because the hunt is continuing to be annoying I’ll attempt to bring this up again here: Does anyone know where to find grass-fed beef (like, in mass quantities) and grass-fed milk locally?

  2. Every spring when I get my plants from Birchfields Greenhouse off the Zimmerman Road there is a place with a sign for eggs. Bought them once they were good. Jean Duluth Road. Turn Right on Zimmerman, and a few miles there will be a sign on your right.

  3. Hi Danny. I double checked and Organic Valley is labeled as “grass fed,” both on carton and on its web site. Regarding beef, the Co-op has beef by Thousand Hills that is labeled as “grass fed.” I have been told that you can order mass quantities of meat from the Co-op, but have never done that, so I don’t know how well it works.

    Also, a couple of years back, I think there was some info on PDD about a farm in South Superior that offered grass-fed meat?

  4. Hmmm. I think Organic Valley only sells some grass-fed milk. Not all of theirs is though, I think. Just checked the carton in our fridge and the word “grass” is nowhere to be found.

    The farm in South Superior selling grass fed beef would be great. We kind of want to buy a quarter of a carcass. I’m going to have to do some searching into the PDD archives. Thanks.

  5. Danny, I vaguely remember my boyfriend talking about buying a 1/2 cow from Hursch Meat Processing in Poplar. I don’t see anything about it on the website though.

    It might be worth giving them a call. We get meat from them all the time (they have a retail store in addition to their processing deal) and have had pigs processed through them. All good stuff.

  6. Appreciate it. Tried it, no luck.

    Thanks though.

  7. Clover Valley Farms sells eggs at the farmer’s market at UMD every Wednesday afternoon. They advertise them as being “non-GMO, non-soy, non-hormone eggs.”

  8. 4 Quarters Holdings in Wrenshall has great meat. You’ve eaten their animals if you have gone to the Duluth Grill.

  10. I get some of my meat from Angel Acres Farm down in Mason, WI. It is a bit of a ways away, but the meat is fantastic.

    You can find it at the Lake Nebagamon farmers market on Wednesdays.

  11. By far the best milk I’ve ever had is from Cedar Summit Farm. They’re located down near New Prague, but their milk, and cream, are available at the Coop. Shake or whip their cream up and you have a great butter.

  13. Lake Superior CSA has been a good source for us.

  14. Oh, maaan, I thought this was a plant question. This was on the front page of the Duluth News Tribune’s business section:
