As the price of eggs rises, so does the demand for local eggs.

“We’ve been really busy lately,” said Bob Stamp, owner of Stamp Egg Farm in Johnston.

As egg prices rose to an average of $4.25 in December, more people turned to local suppliers. Local prices are generally between the lowest and highest egg prices consumers will find on grocery store shelves. However, as any egg farmer will tell you, local eggs are of superior quality.

“There are many reasons to buy local,” said Adam Baffoni, of Baffoni Poultry in Johnston. “You keep more money in the local economy. You support the works … and the eggs are better. When you buy from us, we collect the eggs from the chickens a couple of hours earlier, so it will last in the refrigerator for two months, not two weeks.”
