Let’s talk about our girls, shall we?
If I had a choice to pick what I thought was the best tasting eggs in the world, I would choose the dark brown (sometimes chocolate) eggs of the Black Copper Marans. We specialize in Marans and breed our flock focusing on the attributes that follow The American Standard of Perfection.
These highly sought after eggs boast thick shells and contain a golden yellow to bright orange yolk rich in flavor and vitamins.
We do not judge our girls based on the darkness of their eggs since this goes against common sense and the natural cycle of the bloom produced by our birds. Egg color with Marans varies throughout the laying season and with age. The practice of breeding for the darkest eggs is a great disservice to the breed due to breeding choices that often disregards the Standard of Perfection for this line of chickens.
Due to their great personalities, beautiful eggs, and a stunning and beautiful feather pattern, we fell in love with this breed. Julia Child was said to use only Marans eggs. It’s also no wonder that the Marans produces the eggs that are preferred by James Bond. Just ask Ian Fleming!
For Chefs and Restauranteurs
We are a small family farm operation that strives to service our customers at the highest level. As you know, specialty egg production can fluctuate wildly and availability disappears at the worst possible time. We now work exclusively with restaurants so we can size our flock appropriately and provide you with a consistent supply of our delicious Black Copper Marans eggs throughout the year.
Think of the peace of mind of having your own virtual flock that is sized, managed, pasture-raised, and producing for your business! Click here to contact Chris for more information or send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Let’s talk about your egg storage!
- All of our eggs contain their natural bloom. The bloom seals the egg from the outside world. They are safe and fresh during their transport.
- Once you receive your eggs, just place into your refrigerator.
- You are receiving fresh eggs. That is, we collect our eggs daily and ship several times per week. The only way to get fresher eggs is to have your own flock!
