About Our Eggs
You can expect the best tasting, most flavorful and bright Sunday morning breakfast when you use Deer Run Farm's pasture-raised eggs!
Our eggs are collected fresh daily from our pasture-raised, heritage breed chickens. Our birds live and thrive on the rolling pasture lands we provide them. With access to fresh air, bugs and grasses to consume and an environment filled with lots to explore, our chickens are living their best lives and providing us with the best eggs possible.
Every dozen is packed with some of each colored egg we offer for a unique appeal to those who've only seen white or brown eggs in the store. What makes the eggs so colorful, you may be thinking? It's the breeds of the hens that lay them. Each breed we raise is considered a heritage breed (not a commercial hybrid bred to lay unethically) and each lay a specific colored egg including blues, greens, chocolate browns and speckled shades. The shells of our eggs are harder, albumens are thicker (egg white), and the yolks are a bright ORANGE color, raised and resting nicely on top of the whites. Their appearance and taste can all be attributed to their free-range-on-pasture-all-year-around lifestyle and their supplemented feeds that are made right here on the farm that were properly balanced specifically to meet the needs of our heritage breeds of chickens that are raised on pasture, naturally.
Our eggs can be purchased at our on farm store, through farmers' markets and through Market Wagon. Our eggs for consumption are NOT sold on or through our website at this time.
Eggs are typically in stock regularly from February through September, but fluctuate in availability during the colder months and the shorter days of the year. It's recommended to call for egg availability before coming to the farm.
