When you drive outside Vancouver, some farmers sell free-range chicken eggs – in some cases laid that day.

A few miles away along Chilliwack Lake Road (# 46934), you will see a signage Farm Fresh Eggs. A retiree couple, Mr. and Mrs. Len Farmer in their late 80s sell brown eggs at CAD$ 3.50 a dozen (a dollar more than Carol but the eggs are bigger). They keep the eggs in a refrigerator so hopefully they are fresh or fresher than the ones in supermarkets. Brown eggs in the supermarkets cost CAD $3.50 a dozen as well.

The Farmers actually met in high school, got married to someone else, both became widowed, reconnected and joined the knot in their senior years.
Call the Farmers at 604 824 2394 to check for egg availability. By the way, the Farmers give away their well=spent egg-laying chickens for free at the end of the year. You just have to pick them up. The meat will most likely be tough, but it sure will be terrific for soup.
