I own a little farm... we raise vegetables, garden plants and CHICKENS....Our Farm is Citygirl Farm, where the chicks rule the roost. In Springhills Ohio.
I am appaled at the ingrediants listed for eggs at these companys in the Forbes article.
The egg is a darn near perfect food. Egg Yolks and their cholesteral are debateable, but honestly, really??? Hard to mess up an egg but these guys have done it!
I would not even sell any of these companies an egg let alone eat one of theirs......gross!
If you have a chicken farmer in your area that produces eggs by free ranging them, and feeding them greens, go get yourself a dozen and enjoy what an egg is suppose to taste like. When we give our eggs away, and believe me, we give away...way more than we have ever sold...people say, I can not believe the color of the yolk, its orange! The white did not run all over the pan, it actually stood up! How do you get eggs to taste like that? We dont do anything to them is the answer, we let the egg, just be the egg!
Ok sorry about the soap box, but when its your livelyhood, it becomes personal.
Get your eggs at the farmers market folks. The USDA regulates us to make sure our practices and refrideration meets pretty tough standards. Small farmers that is, I have no idea how corporations get away with this stuff.
