Jeremiah Cunningham's World's Best Eggs

By Marc Hamel, January 22, 2009  |  Meet the Blogger  |  More Posts by Marc Hamel
At Jeremiah Cunningham's Coyote Creek Farms, the chickens live outside and are allowed to fully express their nature as chickens because they can scratch in the earth for worms, bugs, and grubs to satisfy their natural need for animal protein. They also enjoy dust baths to keep themselves clean, socialize with their flock in uncrowded conditions, have fresh clean air to breathe and healthy sunshine for optimal health. Locally available at Whole Foods Market stores and select bakeries. Just one of our local vendors who is out there doing right by their animals. Check your store for more great local vendors.

These ARE the best eggs! -- and of course the best can cost more. How about this idea --Instead of denying yourself the "best" -- why not create an egg "main dish" such as an omelet, and serve it for supper? Jeremiah's eggs are a bargain when you compare their price to meat or fish!

Excellent video. I'm now a convert and will make a point to purchase Mr. Cunningham's products. Elgin is not too far a drive, so I may try and take the kiddos out there for a field trip...gotta love homeschooling!

I really love these eggs, I try to purchase them anytime I can but they are sometimes sold out, due to their popularity.

These eggs are the best that my family has had, but they are priced so high that it is often outside of our budget to buy them.

I've been to the farm, I can tell you these chickens are living the life! They are quite simply the best eggs you've ever eaten and the caretakers at the farm are committed to delivering the finest product available. Worth the wait and every penny!

Thank you, Jeremiah and company. If we are going to be nourished, surely these chickens deserve to have led a happy, normal life instead of a miserable one. And what's an extra dollar or two for a DOZEN high quality eggs? People easily spend more than that on ONE bag of junk food without a second thought (and the conveyor belt production of junk food is far less labor- and logistic-intensive). Hopefully more people will be aware of the nutritional, physiological, and humane benefits of consuming happy, healthy chickens; instead of drugged up, miserable, and unhealthy ones that were "dead" a long time ago. Thank you.

This is how things should be, Mr. Cunningham knows how to respect the animals. As a biologist I am so happy to see people treating living things, the land, the pasture with care and I hope more and more farms copy his example and leave behind the way that big corporations manipulate what creatures eat, how the live theis very short lifes(in the dark) and many other disrespectful management conduct (please see the movie FOOD INC in moovie theaters). Many thanks to Mr Cunningham.

i am looking for eggs with CLA. I have read that eggs-specifically the yolks have the highest levels of CLA of all dairy products(milk,butter,yogurt) What i have learned through reading is that the animals must be pasture/grass fed vs grain fed. What eggs do you carry that would be in this category ? thanks for your reply and for sharing your knowledge. tara

@TARA - While I do not have information regarding CLA in the eggs, I can speak about pasture raised vendors. Our vendors differ between regions so I am unable to tell you which egg vendor at your local store is listed as pasture-raised. Check with your local store to see if they can look in to their vendors but I was not able to find any egg vendors that did not use any grain at all. Sometimes supplemental grain is needed depending on the weather conditions, etc.

These eggs are delicious! They are priced higher than most eggs, but they are a far healthier product. Also, I feel good knowing I am purchasing a healthy product and that my money goes towards supporting chickens and keeping them healthy and happy! Its the least I can do to thank the chickens for providing such great nutrition!
