free range eggs on STX?
Anyone know where I can get free range organic style eggs on St Croix? (And the chickens living on the sides of he roads don't count).
Princesse Seafood has them on Thursdays
I was at the Farmer's Market Co-Op and they had cartons of eggs for $4. I didn't check them out, but I'm assuming they're from a farm.
I'm not sure if they were cage free or not.
I concurr, the Eggs at Princesse Seafood are second to none. Happy Hens lay the most delicious eggs and these hens are treated like royalty. Farm to Table dinners are getting so much easier on STX these days. Kudos to all you local farmers and patrons that have kept the steady stream of good, locally sourced products flowing to all Crucians!
I think Good Spirits next to The Reef (east end across from Duggan's) has colored organic egg$.
Plaza Extra usually has organic, free range or hormone free. They also have Eggsland's Best. Watch the dates!
2 happy hens should produce 14 eggs a week. So I hear.
So, if you get less than 14, should you put your hens in therapy?:@)
... Watch the dates!
Always! On all things!
didn't know about plaza or princess seafood having them. I have gotten them from good spirits but the often are out.
We bought them once from Southgate, which of course is no longer at southgate...down on south shore now. Felt they were way overpriced, and not so great but they were pretty....all different color shells
Just got home from Plaza (WHY do I go on Sunday?, but that's a different thread.) They had 3 cartons of "cage free omega 3 eggs" left. The date on one carton was...Feb. 12, the other two were Feb. 27, which is too close for my comfort level, so I passed. $3.99 a dozen.
our chickens lay free range eggs. trouble is we can't find them. they are well hid. and i will not cage the "girls" so every day is a easter egg hunt when we have the time.
We had local Eggs at Good Spirits today _ I think a local kid sells them to the owner to sell in the case.
BTW - Always ask if you don't see something in there, I've gotten some interesting requests while working and always try to help.
i k now the "kid" who has the eggs. the sisters to my chicks. i guess my chicks got the hide and seek gene. i think everyone should have chickens. good for bugs and you get fresh eggs. and they make great pets and conversation objects when you have company.
Do they mess up your grass? I don't mean that kind of "mess":D The wild chickens in our neighborhood are starting to scratch up too much grass.
Ended up getting some good ones at plaza this time.
In NY if you have cage free chickens you just are feeding the raccoons and foxes.
juanita they do scratch the grass some but not a mess. they are looking for bugs. as far as the other mess:-X well they do do that but not bad. i think a good number to have would be 4-6. hens that is. don't start with a lot. we have 6 and a good number.
they get all excited when they hear popcorn popping in the microwave. they know its for them. and they get beer to wash it down.:D
Popcorn and Beer??????D
I'll bet those are laying some good eggs!
BEER and gettin layed....... ummmmm(tu)
The farmer's market as Beaston Hill has organic free range eggs and they are reasonably priced at 4 bucks. I'd hate to buy them from the store (no matter what the packaging says)- too many laws and regulations are in favor of commerce and therefore their definition of "free range" and "organic" could be VERY different from yours! I say stick local.
