, the eggs come in a variety of shapes, sizes and colors, and they’re all Farm Fresh, Hormone-free, and naturally delicious – whether they come from chickens, ducks or even quail!

They are also twice as rich in Vitamin E, up to six times richer in beta carotene and four times higher in essential omega-3 fatty acids!
