The Homestead is a licensed egg distributor. Before you receive Homestead eggs, they have been inspected for shell integrity, washed and refrigerated. The date on the label is the date the OLDEST egg was laid. According to the South Carolina egg guidelines, refrigerated eggs last 45 days.
The Homestead’s laying hens are prolific ladies. Our hens eat non-gmo, soy-free feed, and are only cooped in the evening. They spend their days inside an acre fenced area for laying, having woods and open land in which to range. Each afternoon after their laying time is done, they leave the fenced area and are out in the yard, scratching and foraging for bugs and tasty tidbits.
Eggs are currently $4.00 per dozen, ranging from medium to jumbo, and are not sorted by size.
