Not All Eggs Are Equal

If you enjoy eggs – and I’m sure you do – you’ll be well aware there can be a huge difference in the taste and quality of one egg to another.

This is because not all eggs are equal – far from it.

The interesting thing is that the taste is not to do with the breed of the hen that laid the egg, it’s to do with how the hens are being treated at the farm.

At the least, you should always look for eggs that are labeled as ‘free range’ or ‘cage free’ as a starting point.

Caged or battery hens are generally kept in dire conditions. It’s a dated practice – that does still happen – but it’s cruel and inhumane to keep hens caged up all day.

Not only is it inhumane, but caged hens’ eggs suffer in quality as a result. The only ‘plus’, if you can call it that, is that these eggs cost less.

But trust me, it’s not worth saving a few pennies for eggs that taste so much worse than ethically produced eggs.

In addition to this, hens deserve to have excellent living conditions. They should be treated well, fed a good quality feed, and have a high standard of care.

Happy chickens are healthy chickens, and healthy chickens lay the best eggs. This is why I always look into how egg farms treat their chickens.

You’ll notice that any farm with ethical and healthy practices will be proud to talk about it on their site and plaster it all over their egg boxes.

Can I Sell Eggs in Connecticut?

If you’re interested in starting an egg-selling business, you have to start by checking you know what the rules and regulations are where you live.

The regulations for selling eggs vary depending on what kind of business you have, who you’re selling to, and what state you’re in.

The best place to get started if you’re operating in Connecticut is with the Connecticut General Assembly (CGA).

The CGA enacts laws for the state and is responsible for managing public welfare, businesses, and other matters.

I was able to find this document outlining what’s involved with selling Free-Range Eggs in Connecticut.

In summary, this document states “In order to sell eggs, whether free-range or non-free-range, to food service establishments in Connecticut, an entity must undergo federal or state inspection and become an “approved food source” under the Public Health Code.”

It sounds like there are different regulations if you’re selling a few eggs from your backyard flock than there is for a large egg farming operation.

Whatever type of business you’re starting, I advise reaching out to the CGA and asking them to point you in the right direction so you start off on the right foot.
