    I was just curious and wanted to see if anyone knew anyother person or even if you, yourself don't like farm fresh eggs. It's perfectly fine if you don't, I was just curious. Also, what do you think makes the store bought eggs taste flavorless?

    I actually do know one person who said that free range eggs are too "rich". I think the taste difference between free range "farm" eggs and "store" eggs is in the different food the hens get. Free range chickens get more variety. Studies have shown that free range eggs not only taste better, they are more nutritious too.

    As far as taste goes, I've never been able to tell the difference between our homegrown, organic, free range eggs and those from factory farms at the supermarket. Go figure!

    Still, I feel much better eating our eggs!!
