Looking for eggs with "orange" yolks

Every time I go to Italy I notice that egg yolks have a darker yellow/orange color compared to the eggs that we get here. I also notice that when my girlfriend ind and I try to replicate some italian baking recipes the result is almost always very disappointing even if we use the same 00 flour, leavener, etc. Buford wrote that Batali adds more yolks in the pasta dough to get something closer to what you have in Italy. My impression is that most farms here give chickens a very different diet, and this shows in the different yolk color. In summary: does anyone know a local farm selling eggs with this orange yolk?
