Farm Fresh Eggs Pickup

We have partnered with our friends Abby and James Warren to bring you farm fresh eggs! They began Egg-Ordinary Causes in an effort to raise money for local nonprofits, and we're excited to share it with you.

 

Springfield residents have the opportunity to taste the difference of farm fresh eggs while making a difference in the community. 

 

$5 per dozen is the suggested donation, and 100% of proceeds go toward the Egg-Ordinary Cause of the Month.

For the rest of March and April, we have chosen the Humane Society of York County!

Donations can be made via Venmo to @fortmillnow.

If you have any questions, please email EggOrdinaryCauses@gmail.com.

How to care for your eggs

HANDLING INSTRUCTIONS
Fresh farm eggs have what is called a bloom or cuticle, an invisible protective membrane over the shell that seals the egg from oxygen and bacteria. (Grocery store eggs do not have this layer, which is why they don't last as long).

HOW TO WASH

To wash, rinse gently in warm water without soap.

 

WHEN TO WASH

For the longest-lasting eggs, do not wash your eggs until you are ready to eat them! Washed eggs last ~2 months in the refrigerator. Unwashed eggs can last about 2 weeks on the counter and about 3 months in the refrigerator.  

If you decide to wash your eggs before storing them, make sure they are completely dry before placing them back in their container.

HOW TO TELL HOW FRESH THE EGGS ARE

Fill a bowl with 5 inches of cold water and gently place your eggs inside. Very fresh eggs will sink to the bottom and lay on their side. If an egg stays at the bottom but stands on its small end, it's still fine to eat (just not as fresh).

Tip: if you're making hard-boiled eggs, the oldest eggs will be the easiest to peel.
