Are you a fan of eggs? Have you ever heard of the Happy Egg Co.? In honor of National Egg Day, we are doing a bit of a deep dive into this company and their eggs.
Have you ever heard of heritage eggs? As someone who loves omelettes and eggs and just learning about things like farming and where our food comes from, I was fascinated by the idea of heritage eggs. But what are they?
Technically, heritage eggs are eggs that come from heritage breed chickens. According to The Livestock Conservancy, heritage breed chickens must be from breeds that have been “recognized by the American Poultry Association (APA) prior to the mid-20th century,” they must come from natural mating, they “must have a moderate to slow rate of growth,” and finally they must have an outdoor lifestyle that is both productive and long lived for a chicken. Basically, it’s hard to be considered a Heritage Chicken, producing Heritage eggs.
However, that is the point of the Happy Egg Co.. They allow us to enjoy heritage eggs (and more), much like we enjoy any other egg we find at the grocery store. And these eggs are next level! They are brown and blue shelled eggs that feature a golden, orange, sunshiny yolk. And this is a yolk that will change the way you look at eggs.
Have you tried the Happy Egg Co. eggs?
So what exactly makes these eggs so special? I would say it’s all in the fact that this is a richer and creamier egg. The yolk itself changes the game. And, I will admit, I am a big fan of the color of the egg shells. I know that the egg shells mean nothing when it comes to the actual flavor, but I still love them.
I will point out that the company does not just offer heritage eggs, they also have a few other options for those of us who are egg obsessed. Want free range eggs? They have those. Are you a fan of organic eggs? They have those too. Looking for more vitamins in your diet? Then you may want to check out their vitamin plus eggs.
While we are totally here for the heritage eggs, I am excited to give all of their varieties a try. If you have ever compared different egg brands or organic versus free range, then you know there is a difference when it comes to cooking and baking. So why wouldn’t you want to give Happy Egg Co. a try when they offer a variety of things that we are already looking for when it comes to our eggs?
