Marie Pendzich is a caretaker for some pampered hens. They are truly free-range (not just having access to an open door, which is literally all that's required to earn that label). Note that sometimes the required "open door" only leads into a open area that doesn't even have sod...just bare soil. So while they've earned the "free range" label, those hens really don't have access to nature, which is what is implied.
Marie's hens lay eggs that have beautiful (and nutritious) orange yolks because of the natural foods they eat (bugs, clover, grass, etc.).
She has had some extra eggs lately and we'd like to make sure others are aware that they're available. She sells them at the Elizabethton Farmers' Market, and also has them available after church at First Pres. in E-ton. If she's headed to Johnson City, she'll even meet you there.
She sells the X-large or jumbo eggs for $4 a dozen, and a dozen medium eggs for $3. If you like wholesome eggs and want to support a local provider in the TriCities area, please send Marie a message: firstname.lastname@example.org
