Five Acre Farms Local Eggs have arrived, courtesy of the happy, cage free hens at Maple Meadow Farm in Salisbury, Vermont. Pick them up at any of the three Union Market locations in Brooklyn.
Maple Meadow is a small egg farm owned and run by George and Jackie Devoid, hands-on managers who treat their hens with extra special care. They feed their flock of Rhode Island Reds ground oyster shells for extra calcium to produce stronger shells and healthier eggs. They never give their hens any hormones or preventive antibiotics.
