What Makes a Good Egg Farm?

The quality and taste of an egg doesn’t depend on the breed of chicken, it depends on the environment and living conditions of the hen that laid it.

There is a saying in the egg industry, “the happier the hen, the healthier they are, the healthier they are, the better their eggs.”

It makes perfect sense. But what exactly makes a hen happy and healthy?

The basic needs of healthy hens are; good quality nutrition, excellent living conditions, and plenty of space to roam.

Ideally, hens should be able to roam free-range as much as they like. When choosing an egg farm to buy from, this is the first thing I’d check.

In addition to having plenty of space, their living conditions should be excellent. This means, safe from predators, not cramped, warm and clean, etc.

The taste of an egg is related to what a hen eats, which shouldn’t come as a surprise.

You can’t always check what commercial feed hens are being given, but knowing they’re able to roam free-range and graze on bugs and plants is a huge plus.

If you’re after high-quality eggs, you should always visit an egg farm in person.

Most farms welcome this, and it’s a great way to see for yourself how they’re running their business and caring for their hens.

Selling Chicken Eggs in New York

If you’re interested in selling eggs, not buying them, you have to be very careful to follow the current regulations surrounding the sale of eggs.

I looked into it, and the regulations for selling eggs in New York are outlined in Circular 854.

The links to this document directly had been moved when I checked, but this page lays out the details of the Circular.

You have to follow strict regulations and labeling requirements when boxing up and labeling your eggs.

You may also need a permit depending on how many eggs you’re producing and selling, and how big your operation is going to be.

My advice is to contact the New York State Department of Health and Food Safety as a starting point.

Someone there will be able to direct you to the correct information at the time of reading this.
