2) Most chicken feed has corn and soy. Any rich hipster, introspective foodie, or individual who periodically mitigates personal concern for global food supply degradation by getting up early enough on Saturday to visit a farmers market -- knows that the federal government heavily subsidizes corn stalks and soy plants. Chicken feed is no exception. We believe chickens prefer to eat really, ridiculously expensive feed. We buy it by the pallet.
3) Chickens don't like being in cages. A minimum thickness of impermeable and ideally electrified steel is necessary to keep chickens from being converted to fox treats, but chickens like to stretch their legs and wings in wide open fields. We believe that keeping our chickens in a protected but open and rotating pasture field, combined with superior quality feed will produce the Highest Quality Eggs that northeastern Connecticut has seen recently.
4) The cost of chicken eggs is a function of feed quality, available pasture, and supply chain overhead. Since we're maximizing the first two to bring you The Best Tasting Eggs Ever, we will try to minimize supply chain overhead by building the shortest supply chain possible. This means selling eggs in our front yard.
5) Your farmer wants to sell you eggs in their front yard. Look at their front yard. Then look at our front yard. Then at theirs. Now back to ours. What do you see? You see eggs with a cost representative of the quality of the chicken feed and pasture that we employ to provide The Best Tasting Eggs ever.
