Certified Humane Eggs

For those vegetarians who eat eggs, Whole Foods carries "Certified Humane" eggs. Only "Certified Humane" eggs are truly cage free.

Humane Society has a description of what the egg carton labeling means.

For the most cage free eggs Weaver Street Market in Carrboro carries eggs from Fickle Creek Farm. We saw these chickens on a farm tour and they are definitely allowed to dust bathe, run free and have access to shelter with nests when they want it. Weaver Street Market usually stocks these on Thursdays, and they go very fast!

Harris Teeter also carries them. I believe Born Free is the brand.
