With the arrival of spring, warmer days and longer daylight hours, fresh eggs are abundant again on the North Fork. You may have missed them a bit during the colder, dark winter days when chickens generally lay fewer eggs.
Do you really want weeks-old eggs that have sitting under supermarket fluorescent lights? Didn’t think so.
Fresh eggs are more nutritious and well, just taste better. Here are a few of our favorite North Fork fresh eggs:
Browder’s Birds, Mattituck – you can find their certified organic eggs at Sang Lee Farm in Peconic or Goodfood and Lombardi’s in Mattituck. Go to their website for details on their egg share and chicken csa
8 Hands Farm, Cutchogue – get these fresh eggs directly from the Cox Lane farm (or sit down to a delicious breakfast on site.) You will also find a butcher at the Farm selling their own lamb, pork, chicken plus organic produce.
North Fork Eggs from pastured raised hens, can be found at Sang Lee Farm in Peconic, Orient Country Store, The Farm in Southold, The Giving Room in Southold and at KK’s at the Greenport Farmer’s Market. (And Sep’s farmstand once they open for the season)
Deep Roots Farm, Southold – Pick up fresh eggs from their Main Road farmstand along with their own produce and pork products. (Find them just a bit east of North Fork Table and Inn)
Catapano Farms, Southold – Pick up fresh Catapano eggs (and goat cheese) at the Main Road nursery or at the Greenport Farmers Market on First Street.
