Farm Fresh Eggs for Sale!
Friday, 18 November 2011 18:26

turkeys

Mountain Valley View Farm is proud to announce that we are now selling farm fresh, organic eggs. We have 3 different types of chicken: Plymouth Barred Rock, Red Star, and the unusual Aracauna that lays beautiful blue and turquoise colored eggs. We also have 7 breeds of duck that lay eggs for us, and we are planning to add geese and turkeys to our flock soon. All of our birds are free range, hormone and antibiotic free, and fed a fresh grain feed that contains no soy or animal bi-products so that you can always be sure you are getting the best quality organic eggs.

Benefits of Organic Eggs

Organic eggs are extremely nutritious and contain significantly higher ratios of Vitamins A and E, Omega 3, and beta carotene than commercially produced eggs. They are also lower in cholesterol and saturated fat, making them an excellent choice for anyone concerned about their health. Furthermore, trace chemicals from pesticides and fertilizers have been detected in commercial eggs, and many of these chickens are given growth hormones and antibiotics to make them produce more. Chickens at Mountain Valley View Farm are fed an all-natural grain and allowed to roam and forage for food to supplement their diet. We do not use chemical pesticides or fertilizers on our farm, nor do we give our animals growth hormones or antibiotics, so you can be assured that our eggs will not have the toxins so common to commercially produced eggs. You will also love the taste of our eggs, as studies have shown that organic eggs from hens that eat a varied diet have a noticeably stronger and more pleasing flavor than commercial eggs.

 

Benefits of Duck, Goose, and Turkey Eggs

Almost everyone is familiar with the taste and nutrition of chicken eggs, but what about eggs from other birds? Each one has its own particular flavor and benefits.

Duck eggs are significantly larger than chicken eggs, and goose eggs are larger still. One goose egg, when cooked, will be roughly equivalent to four chicken eggs, and both duck and goose eggs also have more yolk than the average chicken egg. Thicker shells lend themselves toward a longer shelf life (at least 6 weeks in the refrigerator), and goose eggshells are so thick that they are perfect for the delicate art of carving and embossing beautiful designs directly onto the shell. Both duck eggs and goose eggs are slightly higher in protein content, as well as containing greater concentrations of other nutrients like iron, potassium, Vitamin E, Vitamin B12, and Vitamin D.


 

Duck and goose eggs have their own unique flavors as well. Duck eggs have  a noticeably stronger flavor than chicken eggs, and although not everyone may care for this taste when eaten plain, nearly everyone agrees that duck eggs are unparalleled when used for baking. Their richness produces moister, fluffier baked goods–absolutely incredible cakes and cookies. Goose eggs taste similar to chicken eggs, but seem a bit drier. They are also thicker than chicken eggs and have a custard-like yolk. They are also wonderful in cooking and are best in sweet confections and omelets.

Some people find no difference in taste between chicken and turkey eggs, while others believe they are a little sweeter and stronger in flavor. The turkey egg is very large compared to normal chicken eggs, and makes fabulous omelets and egg dishes for large families. Due to its large size, it is higher in cholesterol than the other eggs, so don't eat a whole turkey egg by yourself! If you use it to replace multiple chicken eggs in a recipe or divide the cooked egg between several people, you will avoid the extra cholesterol and still save the hassle of using many individual eggs.
