What if your eggs were from local hens...

We source our eggs from smaller family-owned operations that only raise their birds on pasture and without cages. This week, we invite you to learn more about your egg farmers and how adding eggs to your subscription can be a step toward a more sustainable future.

One Egg At A Time

"MilkRun makes it easy for every home in America to buy even just their eggs from a local farmer. Because we believe changing the world begins one neighborhood - and one egg - at a time."

- Julia Niiro, small farmer / founder

weekly Highlights

Shiitake Mushrooms - Columbia Mushroom Company - Many consider these to be the most popular mushrooms with their classic cap-and-stem shape and strong, earthy flavor. This company’s founder literally started out growing in his living room! All of their equipment was invented for their use and they use specialized mushroom cultivation bags alongside optimum light, humidity and airflow to produce flavorful mushrooms with a long shelf life.

Purple Potatoes -Vibrant Valley - Do they look like regular potatoes? Nope! Do they taste like regular potatoes? Yup! With their vibrant purple colors, they might be just the thing for a fun snack before trick-or-treating this year. And, they even carry some health benefits with less of an impact on blood sugar and more antioxidants than white or yellow potatoes.

Acorn Squash -Pablo Munoz - Its shape is where this squash gets its namesake. Fortunately, you won’t have to fend off the squirrels for this acorn. These are a great source of antioxidants and it’s said they even promote digestive health. We love baking acorn squash for side dishes, and pureeing it for sauces, soups, and more.

Can a bacon subscription be a step toward a more ethical, more sustainable future? Yes! Read our blog post and find out why.
