I can't tell the difference between the farm fresh and the grocery store eggs.
At $2 for20 I'd have to guess you mean a literal chicken farm, as in commercial operation. Yes? If so, those are probably eggs you get in the supermarkets, just haven't gone thru the middlemen yet. I think most of the people posting on this thread are talking about small personal farms that just provide more eggs than what the person keeping them needs, so they give away or sell the extras to help defer costs. I can pretty much guarantee those kinds of chickens get better feed and treatment than a commercial farm. I know my friend fed her babies/chickens a premium diet and they certainly weren't caged.
