Yard eggs! we all said. What the heck are yard eggs?
It turns out that they are exactly what the name says --- just eggs that people who aren't egg factories gather from their own chickens. So by definition I suppose they are "organic" and "free range" and all those good things.
Well, I had never heard of them, but last week, as I drove down a road near me, I saw this sign. The man who sells all sorts of farm-fresh produce there said that the eggs he sells are better for us than the ones we get from the grocery store --- no chemicals in their diets and the only feed outside of what they find on the ground is the occasional handful of cracked corn.
I am now the proud owner of yard eggs, and I feel healthier already.
