"Did you know that the eggs you bought at the supermarket are several weeks old - up to 15 weeks?! Here's the countdown. On the farm. 1, 2, 3...When a chicken from a commercial farm lays an egg, it takes it up to three weeks to get to the packaging and distribution plant. At the packing plant. 4, 5, 6...At the packing plant, the eggs are washed and graded and packed. This can take three more weeks. In the store. 7, 8, 9, 10...It's recommended that the sell by date on a carton of eggs is no more than 30 days after it's packaged. At your home. 11, 12, 13, 14, 15...The USDA recommends that you use eggs 3 to 5 weeks after purchase. So those eggs that are in your refrigerator could be fifteen weeks old! By contrast, the organic eggs from Reedy Fork Farm are never more than one week old when you purchase them. When you get eggs from us, you're not only getting the best tasting eggs from chickens that are fed the finest of organic feeds, you are getting eggs that are much fresher than anything you can buy from the store!
