In addition to your weekly box Siren Song offers seasonal organic, free range chicken and duck eggs. Eggs can be purchased by the dozen at the farm or weekly at the farmers markets.
Most of the eggs currently sold in supermarkets are nutritionally inferior to eggs produced by hens raised on pasture. Compared to official U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) nutrient data for commercial eggs, eggs from hens raised on pasture may contain:
• 1/3 less cholesterol
• 1/4 less saturated fat
• 2/3 more vitamin A
• 2 times more omega-3 fatty acids
• 3 times more vitamin E
• 7 times more beta carotene
At Siren Song our eggs come from our heritage and endangered breeds of chickens: Ameraucanas, Blue Laced Red Wyandottes, Welsummers, Copper Marans, Speckled Sussex, and Buff Orpingtons. Lots of thought went into the decision on what type of chickens to get. In the end though it just came down to the ones Jen really wanted. All are known to have excellent eggs, all are relatively nice, all are good mothers. So we hope you enjoy their eggs as much as we do. These are not your grocery store white eggs. Siren Song eggs come in a variety of colors- blue, green, turquoise, deep olive, brown, dark grey and bluish-green.We haven't found a white egg yet but if we do we'll let you know.
Our duck eggs come from our beloved and endangered Magpie ducks. When they are not busy waddling through the garden eating all the bugs and allowing us to garden without chemicals they spend their time laying delicious, beautiful eggs.
