An egg is more than just an egg. For local Washington farmers Dan and Lynda at Toboton Creek Farm, an egg is caring for chickens, a quality, nutritious food source and a small piece of community shared with every customer at the University District Farmers Market. The business of large-scale, industrialized egg production remains guarded in secrecy from the public as to hide the brutalities of the treatment of chickens. A Toboton Creek Farms, their unofficial motto is "happy hens lay good eggs," and this positive spirit is made top priority by Dan and Lynda as illustrated by the truly free-range lifestyle that their chickens live in.
Lynda is at the University District Farmers Market selling eggs every Saturday year-round from 9am - 2pm.
