Fresh Farm Eggs...where?

Postby kingfisher » Jul 26th, 2010, 10:19 pm

Just curious if anybody knows a local farm on the Westside where you can buy Free Run eggs?

I don't know specific addresses but I've seen farm fresh egg sign on the across the street from corner of ellliot and glencoe rd in westbank

We have a woman who drops off eggs biweekly at Interior Savings, her business name is Elderberry Farm & Stables Eggs, her phone number is 250-878-0003. They are very good eggs! :)

Those from the stables are best... hens picking through the animal droppings for partially digested grain!

I think you can get them at the bakery on Anders rd. for about $3-4 something per dozen. Last time I bought them there every one in the carton was a double yolk.There is also a place in Peachland up Princeton ave (past the food bank),the place that has pony rides.

Try Quality Greens by TBones... they used to carry them in the Kelowna store so maybe they have them on this side too...
Also in E Kelowna there are a number of farm gate eggs for sale.... one on E K Road just before heading down switchback to creek... and the EK Market gets them in ... you can call them

Elderberry farm and stables is up Trepanier Rd in Peachland. There is a sign noting the stables on the left side of the road. Go past Dryden RD which turns to the left, and keep going on the Trepanier Rd... You will come to it.

If anyone is fortunate to know about the lady in Summerland then that is where you can get the very best eggs. Not only the best largest eggs, but some of the purest real free run gems around. Most people say they have free run eggs but most are truly not. Many feed their stock pellets which are made from god knows where. I really never really cared too much until I tasted the difference side by side. In Summerland, their chickens have acres of fenced in land to eat bugs and such on top of a pretty healthy diet of bread crumbs. Her large eggs need elastic bands to close the carton almost every time. So do a little checking to what is being fed to the chickens before you say "they are the best".

I'm looking for farm fresh eggs in the Rutland or Kelowna area. Anybody you know of?

Edited to add: I'm resurrecting a VERY old thread here

Where do they get the bugs at this time of year?
