Melrose Eggs from Jamberoo

Announcing a new egg supplier – Melrose Farm, Jamberoo! Their small flocks of heritage and cross-bred hens roam freely in a secure area to explore, scratch and forage, as contended hens are want to do! Raised on specialty food and an abundance of greens, the eggs themselves are delicious, with wonderful rich yellow yolks.

It took a bit of negotiation and some luck to bring this together. Being a small operation, it wasn’t worth the cost of them (or us) sending a vehicle from Jamberoo up to Thirroul with a delivery of eggs. But Deborah and Stephen of Melrose Farm come to Kiama Farmer’s Markets each Wednesday to sell their eggs and to shop, and Mary from Mahbrook Organics makes her delivery to us after the markets, so the┬álocal producers network once again manages to pull everything together.
