Why we do not wash or refrigerate our eggs. Eggs have over 17,000 pores through which air passes. Washing the egg can cause the eggshell pores to contract, drawing bacteria into the egg.  A cold environment causes the same effect.  Placing a warm, washed egg directly from the nest into the refrigerator causes moisture to accumulate onto the egg, opening the pores, allowing bacteria to enter, thus possibly spoiling the egg. Eggs that are not washed or refrigerated can last up to 3 times longer than commercially grown refrigerated eggs.

Our eggs are gathered daily.  They are stored in cool environment, allowing the egg’s natural protective layer to “shell over”, thus protecting the luscious egg inside from any harmful bacteria.Rich in Omega-3 Fatty Acids and Vitamins: Organic eggs are much higher in Omega-3 fatty acids than conventional eggs, which is good for your heart and also contain 40 percent more vitamin A and two times as much vitamin E.Reduced Chemical Exposure: Organic eggs are free of the chemical residues commonly found in conventional eggs tainted by antibiotics, pesticides, herbicides, and other harmful substances.USDA & FDA Regulations: The USDA & FDA suggests you should wash and refrigerate your eggs after purchase as it is stated on the sides or backs of our cartons. We have never refrigerated our eggs.  Many countries around the world follow the same egg storing practices as we do. So it is entirely up to you to wash and refrigerate your eggs or not.
