The Golden Egg Farm Unplugged

Local The Golden Egg Farm Unplugged

Eggcellent!

I think we go through two or three dozen eggs a week... how? Well, sticking with tradition, my nan’s egg and mayo sandwiches are a staple in my son’s lunch box and at least once a week we have cheeky omelets for dinner, there are just so many things you can do with eggs, they just go!

So when you do the math’s that makes 1872 eggs a year, making me an expert on exactly what is eggcellent. Although I wasn’t going to say that to Leanne… between you and me I think she is one up!

 

 Leanne and Allan live on a beautiful property along the banks of Wybong Creek, just west of Scone. Their 700 acre property called ‘The Farm’, is home to more than 900 Hy-Line chooks living the high life!Free to graze on lush pasture and sleeping in modern Chicken Caravans, it’s no surprise that the eggs taste so good! Those adorable chooks are busy laying over 6000 eggs a week for which there is no shortage of demand!

You can taste the difference and see it when you crack open their eggs. It’s a cool little experiment you can do yourself, crack open a supermarket egg, right next to one of Leanne’s. You’ll see the difference even before you taste it!

In France you hear people talking about the Terroir of a particular wine: Terroiris how a region’s climate, soil and aspect affect the taste of a wine. For dedicated producers like Leanne and Alan this is no surprise, and in no way is it limited to wine!  Leanne talks about the Terroir of her eggs, their rich yolks, and herby flavor. It’s what keeps customers coming back week after week.

What’s in a Name?

The Golden Egg Farm….

You might think the Golden Egg refers to the amazing coloured yolks of Leanne’s eggs. It’s true, each egg is a rich golden colour, testament to the conditions in which the chooks are kept and fed. However, there’s a little more to it than that.

As Allan tells it when they were just starting out, Leanne’s love of animals saw her bring home two chooks and a stunning Wyandotte rooster for a grand total of $250. A pretty price to pay for something that could have only cost $50!

So that’s when it stuck, “The Golden Egg” because each egg that those hens laid was worth a small fortune!

So what are you waiting for? Make sure you dish up some delicious eggs this week. The fast easy meal no household should be with out!
