We are on a hunt for the freshest eggs in Encinitas, can you help us? We would like to buy a dozen eggs a week from 20 differant Encinitas residents to be used at Farm to Fork. Please pass along any info about local chickens. Why get the freshest eggs? Besides the horrible conditions placed upon laying hens in hatcheries, sometimes called battery cages, the nutritional value in eggs where the hens are able to forage for their own food is much higher. Truely free range eggs are high in omega 3 fatty acids, vitamins A and E as well as beta-carotine. Good for you and the planet too!
