Where do you get your eggs from? It’s a serious question right and one that can cause great debate everywhere from the supermarket, to your local restaurant, to your dining room table. But seriously, where do your eggs come from?
This is one of those issues I’m particularly passionate about, and I usually try and go out of my way to ensure I’m supporting the most ethical option. At times I know I can get a bit extreme and have been known to question restaurateurs as to where they are getting their produce from (see a snippet from Portlandia below) but I don’t think I’m out of line doing so.
I know that it can be a hassle trying to source the best ingredients, especially when you’re in a bit of a rush or you just want to get everything in one spot and not worry about going here there and everywhere just to put together a decent breakfast, but… what if there was a better and more convenient way to make sure you’re getting your hands on some super duper fresh or… Just Been Laid eggs? The answer is literally Just Been Laid.
Fresh eggs in Newcastle
Just been laid are responsible for producing some of the Hunter’s freshest eggs and making them accessible to y-o-u. How does it work? Basically it’s a subscription service. You select the amount of eggs you’d like each week, (if you’re anything like me, you’re going to want to get your hands on that delicious dozen which will only cost you a cool 10 buck a week) and select the venue you’d like to collect them from. Their website lists the comprehensive list of locations where you can collect them but to name a few; Suspension on Beaumont, Side Pocket Espresso, Hubro, Estabar, Frothers (having only just joined yas) and Blackbird Artisan Bakery.
This isn’t some marketing campaign and I wasn’t asked to write this post at all. I just feel like we should all take a little time to be more conscious with our dining choices where and when we can. Why not start with something we (most likely) all eat pretty much every day? Check out Just Been Laid online or head into one of the venues above! Also, we all know farm fresh eggs taste better, it’s not just some advertising ploy, I was definitely surprised to finally remember what eggs actually taste like!
