Sonoma County Egg Hunt: I Brake for Fresh Farm Eggs

Melanie Wong | Mar 23, 2013 05:29 PM

Over the past year or so, I’ve made a point to stop whenever I see a roadside sign offering “Eggs” along the back roads of Sonoma County. I’m spotting them with increasing frequency and more will be coming on line in the future, I’m sure. Many are individual homemakers rather than commercial farmers who are sharing a dozen or two from their pets. Because of this, supply can be variable or they sell out quickly on weekends, so I might not make a special trip just for eggs. But as you’re exploring the farm trails and wine roads of Sonoma County, this is one more agricultural product to add to your local foods shopping list.

They’re all on the honor system, so far, with a cigar box equivalent to leave cash payments. Prices range from $3 to $6 per dozen. Help yourself to the eggs from the refrigerator, and recycle your empty cartons for re-use.
