Purchasing pastured eggs from a local producer is ideal. Most small-scale farmers allow customers to visit the family farm, observe the operation, and ask questions about production methods. This is the best way to judge quality, and build a trusting relationship with the person growing your food.
Look for eggs that are produced without added hormones, antibiotics, or soy. Also, make sure laying hens are given adequate space to roam on pasture.
