Why Does the Chicken Live Down the Road?

Fresh is best.

There are a great number of reasons to love living in Vermont. One in my top ten is the availability of fresh, locally grown or raised food.

Like these eggs.

The chickens who laid these live just three houses down the street. They are kindly treated, well-fed, and the eggs they produce are wonderful.

When you break open one of these ovoid wonders, the yolk is a deep, rich yellow. And the flavor, if you scramble, poach or fry them, is so much better than anything you could ever get in a store—no matter what the label says.
