Okay so I woke up to milk and it was SNOWING!!What!
So after making sure all of the animals were cared for and checking in on our first Featherdown guests, I headed back to the home to feed myself and begin the rest of the day’s work: Washing eggs, churning butter, and making some soft cheese.
While doing some research on Eggs and pondering the fact that I have SO many of them...I came across the study from Mother Earth News about pastured eggs versus the standard $1.29 dozen. Here are the results in brief: They found that truly pastured hens lay eggs that have these numbers going for them in comparison to factory eggs, even factory organic eggs!
• 1/3 less cholesterol • 1/4 less saturated fat • 2/3 more vitamin A • 2 times more omega-3 fatty acids • 3 times more vitamin E • 7 times more beta carotene
UNBELIEVEABLE ! RIGHT? So I have to memorize these numbers so when people look at me crossed-eyed for charging a mere$4.75 a dozen (or even the $4 I charge in the winter) I can recite them. And then ask them how much they paid for their last soda, or muffin. You get the idea.
