Pasture-raised eggs in Vancouver

Hey all,

Would love to get my hands on some local eggs from pastured birds. Here from Boston for a few days and am in need of good-tasting eggs — not those spineless wonders WF's carries.

Thanks!

    Maple Hill Farms is the ones I usually get these days as they are so readily available. I can get them from my neighbourhood grocers. I think I have seen them at Urban Fare and some other places.

      2nd Maple Hill, that's what we get 90% of the time. Other times I grab them from Rockweld Farms when I pick chickens up there in Abbotsford. The Maple Hill ones have great dark yellow yolks and just taste more "eggy" to me if that's a word. :)

      Don't know if I'm late on this but I get my eggs from a farm on #6 rd and West Minster Highway.
      Drive south towards the river on 6 rd and about a quarter of the way down you'll see a homemade sign Fresh Eggs. White with red lettering. On your right. All sizes, always fresh, chickens all over the field. An old Dutch couple that have been there for years. Organic chickens too! Pretty close to the best birds I've ever ate. Closed on Sundays

        Cucinelle: I buy my eggs there, but didn't know that they also sell the birds. Do I need to ask the owners to find out about that? Love their eggs!
