Has anyone bought eggs at Backyard birds- which is on the same road as Verrill Farm? There was an article in the Globe about them. We went there to buy eggs and the refrigerator is empty. Was wondering if anyone has had any success in finding eggs there?Especially interested to know the best times and/or days to go as it is quite a trip and I do not want to go again and be disappointed.
I go to Verrill Farm a lot and was totally unaware of Backyard Birds existence. They offer a whole lot more than just fresh local eggs.Here's everything you need to contact them so please do report back. TIA

They got slammed with orders after the article came out, according to their website, and the eggs are first-come/first-serve.
Chip In Farm in Bedford has a nice selection of fresh eggs, including special separated pullet eggs, from free-running hens, whatever that means. Not organic, though, I'd guess. Great tasting, though. They have over 18,000 birds and plenty of eggs. Here's a Globe article: www.boston.com/ae/food/articles/2007/...
