Eat Locally ~ #WordlessWednesday with Linky



Have you ever stopped to really look at an egg before?  They're so perfect and so beautiful.  Each one is so unique.

We get our eggs from Hubby's sister, who as chickens.  We also get eggs from Blue Jay Creek Art Farm.  For the most part, we try to grow what we can and eat and buy locally as much as we can.

Link up your Wordless Wednesday posts! We'd love to check them out!

We get fresh eggs from my sister's farm as well. Much better than store bought.

Agree 100% re: eating locally. We grow a veggie garden in our backyard every year. Awesome that you have a trusted source of local eggs!

Egg-cactly... Have you ever seen Martha Stewarts Araucana eggs? They are a pale blue and green... amazing really!

Nothing says delicious like fresh eggs!

I love eggs. I noticed an egg farmer at a local farmer's market last week. Maybe this week I'll pay him a visit.

I love eating local in the summer! We have great farmer's markets out here for vegetables and I can't wait for them to open!

I have yet to see local eggs for sale here. I'd be all over that.

KRISTEN:
Hubby asked me if I wanted to raise chickens this year on top of all the other things we do on the farm. To be honest, the beef farm is keeping us crazy busy, so I kind of like being able to get our eggs from my SIL or Blue Jay Creek Art Farm! :)

ELIZABETH:
:) I hear ya!! You can totally taste the difference, right?

OHM:
Sure does!! Can't wait for all the produce to grow, grow, grow! Very excited! We're not 100% self-sufficient by any means, but we grow what we can!

Christine McN said...

MTM:
Yes :) Love knowing where our food comes from. This is why I love growing our own produce!

MARGARITA:
:) Love you! You are too cute! YES!!! I'm totally in awe of how beautiful those eggs are! I'm secretly jealous and want Martha's home and garden! :)

JENN:
That's for sure!!

As much as possible, we try to eat locally. In season, we visit a local Farmer's Market every Saturday and stock up for the week.
Eggs are such perfect creations and very beautiful in their simplicity!

Heather N said...

Nice eggs ;) I miss having a super local source.

Lyne Proulx said...

Can't wait for the local market to be opened this weekend!

We get organic at the grocery store, and when we can, from the Farmers' Market. I don't claim that I can really tell the difference (I know, I should, but I don't much, except that the whites in really fresh eggs are kind of weird to me...). Mostly, I want the chickens to be treated better, so I'll pay extra for that.

J:
Sometimes it's hard to tell the difference, but generally organic eggs seem to have better flavour (in my opinion, at least) . I also notice the difference in the yolks when cooking. It's hard to explain. Ah...I want to go to your house for supper, J! Your recipes always make me hungry.
