A Great Partner
By: Larry Welsch (Jun 15, 2012)
We have been very pleased with our partnership with Highspire Hills Farm to bring better food to the clients of the Chester County Food Bank. Supplying our neighbors in need with a healthier diet is much easier when you have partners like Highspire Hills. The eggs we receive weekly have been very well received by those we serve. The freshness of the eggs is wonderful, and working with Duane and Deb has been a real pleasure. We are looking forward to doing more business with Highspire Hills Farm!

Why I proudly serve Highspire Eggs
By: Tim Courtney (Jun 14, 2012)
I am a trained chef from the CIA and have been cooking professionally for fifteen years. I can tell you, just by looking at these eggs. The yolks are brightly colored and the whites are thick and clear. They produce the most phenomenal omelets, softest curds and custards, and are absolutely ideal for poached egg dishes. I first fell in love with these beautiful eggs when I found them at Kimberton Whole Foods in Downingtown. Then about six months ago I became Head Chef at the Silverspoon Restaurant in Wayne, Pa. We specialize in serving the very best in local foods from sustainable farms in our area, which is something I am truly passionate about. We serve brunch seven days a week and go through a lot of eggs, so where (and from whom) I buy my eggs is a very important to me. With lots of options for farm fresh eggs in this area I started shopping around. I found similar eggs some more expensive, some less expensive but the quality I found in Highspire eggs could not be beat. The difference is in the freshness and flavor. Eggs from a small production farm like this don't sit around in inventory for a week or two before you see them. When I order my eggs for the week I know that they are less than three days old. That's incredibly fresh!!! Having visited the farm on several occasions I can vouch for the living conditions of the hens and dealing with Duane and Deb has been an absolute pleasure. I proudly list on my menu the many farms that support us in our efforts to raise awareness for local foods, most notably Highspire Hill Farms for their delicious eggs. Thanks, Chef Tim
Excellent organic eggs!
By: Mike Nedved (Aug 14, 2010)
I tried the organic eggs from Highspire Hills Farm just as they were coming available, and they were excellent! I have used them in scrambled eggs and corn bread, which my kids enjoyed, and I look forward to using them in baking, where the higher quality of the yolks makes a difference compared to the non-organic eggs I have used. I have been buying cage free/organic eggs at one of the local grocery stores for a couple years now, and their organic eggs were even better than the ones from the store with respect to the flavor and color. The price was competitive (slightly cheaper) than the equivalent eggs at the grocery store.
I grew up on a farm in northern Iowa, and I have not had local farm fresh eggs in a long time. I met the owners, Duane and Deb, as well during my first visit, and they were friendly, helpful, and took time to answer my questions about how their business worked. It was a very enjoyable experience talking to a local farmer in this highly developed area of Pennsylvania, and I plan on return visits for eggs, whenever I need them. I would highly recommend Highspire Hills Farm if you have an interest in trying local, organic eggs.

I prefer eggs from chickens who can be outside, their feet in the grass, scratching and finding natural high protein things to eat instead of (Monsanto designed) corn and scratch, but living a natural life. Free ranging. A "chicken hotel" is not a natural way for chickens to live.

Eva: That is a very nice sentiment and a lovely way to envision chickens where the sun always shines and the wind never blows. Unfortunately that's not the case for SE PA. Please envision 1,000 poor freezing chickens in the howling wind and snow trying to find a blade of grass or bug in January. Our farm is sustainable, practical, uses locally grown and ground feed and provides a comfortable year round environment for our birds. Thanks, Duane
