Why don’t you take market preorders for eggs?

In short, because we never know how many we are going to have. The number of eggs our hens lay during the week depend on the weather, the time of year, the age of the flock, and the mood of the hens. Some days most of our nest boxes are full, and some days many are empty. Because we never know how many we will get, we found it difficult (and stressful!) to try to guess how many to allow for preorder. We were constantly afraid we were going to oversell and not have enough to fill the orders. For this reason, we switched to first come, first served for as many eggs as we have available at each market. We do, however, still have eggs on the website available for home delivery!

A few words from our customers.

Beautiful, delicious leg of lamb delivered to our door. So much better than a lamb shipped from halfway across the world! Excellent customer service and top quality meat -- thank you Hasselmann Family Farm! Amy P., Arlington Heights
