The million dollar egg

Some of the local farm residents have been gettin’ busy.

Our first, little brown egg was delivered (via a very surprised hen) on Christmas Day.  A new car sitting in the driveway with a bow on top could not have made the Hall family any giddier.  And, trust me, this family of six that is currently squishing and arranging body parts into a Honda sedan that seats only four-and-a-half, could get really excited over a car-with-a-bow right now.

My very special agent called our petite gift ‘the million dollar egg’.  Apparently,  that is what it’s cost us to raise twenty-five pasture-raised-organic-fed-coddled-and-spoiled chickens from day-olds to this point in time.

He keeps reminding me “If we didn’t have these chickens, we could get a car”.

Now, what fun would that be?

The Hall kids all love to make scrambled eggs.  Here’s their no-fail recipe from their skillet to yours:

Crack 6-10 farm eggs in a bowl (yolks are orange!) and add a good dollop of whipping cream, whisk together and cook on low heat, folding eggs over in “gentle peaks” (this is in the eye of the beholder…just try not to scramble in a frenzy), add salt and pepper and you will never eat store-bought eggs again!

Happy New Year from the farm.  Peace and joy to you and yours this day.

    I could not agree with you more. Someday you won’t be able to remember what car you were driving at the time and the memory will be counted as the best ever! 32 years later…..

  2. I live in the suburbs so raising them is a little more challenging but I do support some farmers for $3.00 a dozen- well worth it along with my ‘pet milk’ too. !
