Store bought vs. farm fresh eggs

 

Farmhouse Cakes is located in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley more specifically Front Royal, VA.

The Farmhome was built in 1906 and has been in my family for over 100 years. On the farm we board horses, and keep a few farm animals. Most important to the baking business are our chickens.

Can you see the difference between a farm fresh egg and these store-bought eggs?

The top right corner is the farm fresh egg, in case you didn’t know. Obviously its bigger and more plump. The color is brighter and the whites are thicker. This makes a huge difference when baking. Besides the obvious differences between a strore-bought egg and a farm fresh egg the nutritional benefits are big too. Farm fresh eggs added benefits include:

  • less cholesterol
  • less saturated fat
  • increased vitamins A, E and D
  • more omega-3 fatty acids
  • more beta carotene

What does this mean for a Farmhouse Cake customer? Well, you’ve got to feel good about serving a healthier cake! Cakes cant be considered healthy I know,  but fresh eggs help to make a nutritious cake for you, your friends and family. Now thats something we can both feel good about!
