For the next several Mondays I will be giving THANKS to each of my Heirloom Meals' Thanksgiving sponsors. First up is Pete and Gerry's Heirloom Eggs.
Pretty much, hands down the perfect sponsor for Heirloom Meals. Not only do they raise and sell organic, heirloom eggs, they are a family-owned business from New England. They are philosophically aligned with Heirloom Meals' desire to use only real, in season ingredients that are either local or sustainably grown.
"At Pete and Gerry's, we are a family farm that has produced high quality eggs for four generations in Monroe, NH, in the heart of the White Mountains. We believe in providing you, our customer, with fresh organic, cage free, omega-3 eggs from hens that are Certified Humane. As our family farm has grown our commitment to you has remained unchanged and we hope that you will enjoy our eggs as much as we do!
Happy chickens lay better eggs™"
Many of you know that I have chickens and Pete and Gerry's is my go-to egg when my chickens are in a laying lull or if I need more than my flock produces!! They also have chickens that lay those gorgeous blue eggs. When you buy their eggs, it's like Easter all the time!!
Pasture-raised eggs are healthier and rich in omega3 and have a deep orange yolk and are full of flavor. Try making a frittata or some custard with their eggs and you'll taste and see the difference. Worth every extra penny!
Thank you Pete and Gerry's! You have helped me realize a dream!
