Green Tip #73: Buy Local Eggs

local eggsAt a trip to our local farmers market last weekend we got some local eggs. The farm is about 45  minuts away and is a relatively small chicken farm compared to the industrial ones that supply grocery stores with eggs. A dozen costs us $2.85 which is quite comparable to what you would pay in the grocery store plus we know that we are supporting a local farming family. These farmers also own their chickens which is apparently rare in the chicken farming community. Because they own them they have a vested interest in really caring for them.
