At Seven Sons we are committed to raising our hens free-range without feeding drugs, antibiotics or GMO grains. As the seasons permit our happy hens enjoy access to fresh pesticide-free pastures!
By the time these eggs reach your door, we guarantee they'll be less than 10 days old. You won't find eggs that fresh anywhere else!
Here's the deal, eggs are fragile and even though we are sure to pack them with extra love, we've decided to take precautions a step further. In this egg box, we are selling 90 eggs (7.5 dozen), but you will receive 96 eggs, just in case any break.
This is further explained, in the packaging video below :)
Because we eliminate much of the freight and warehousing time spent by conventional laying hen operations, we're able to recommend a six-week shelf life on our Pasture-Raised Eggs.
The eggs we offer are pasture packed, meaning the bloom is left on.This protective layer is a coating on the outside of the egg that the hen leaves. The bloom seals the shell pores, preventing bacteria from getting inside the shell, and reduces moisture loss from the egg--all designed to make the egg last longer.
The bloom is not harmful, and because it is left on, the eggs do not require refrigeration--they can be left out on your countertop or pantry until you are ready to use them. For use, we recommend washing the eggs with lukewarm water only, and once washed, they should be refrigerated. Regardless of whether you leave them out or wash and refrigerate them, they have a 6-week shelf life!
