Farm-fresh eggs

eggs

Hard-boiled, scrambled, baked or fried, eggs deliver on taste and nutrition alike. Each egg is packed with a variety of vitamins and minerals, from protein to selenium.

At PCC, we carry organic and cage-free eggs raised locally in the foothills of Mount Rainier by Stiebrs Farms. Find them in a range of sizes and colors, by-the-dozen or in bulk. For an extra flavor boost, try our fresh duck eggs, with rich yolks and high-protein egg whites that add extra loft to baked goods.

Stiebrs Farms: a tradition of quality

Stiebrs Farms supplies PCC with fresh, local, organic and all-natural eggs. Raising egg-laying hens has been a family tradition dating back to 1953.

Eggs are gathered by hand and the hens are fed farm-grown feed from the farm's own feed mill. Never caged, they live in clean, well-lit, roomy barns and are free to run, preen and socialize outdoors as they wish. Stiebrs is certified humane by Humane Farm Animal Care.

The easiest way to boil eggs

To hard or soft boil eggs, place the eggs in the bottom of a sauce pan and cover them with at least 1 inch of water. Bring the water to a full, rolling boil. As soon as the water boils, remove the pan from the heat and cover. For soft-boiled eggs leave them in the saucepan for 4 minutes. For hard-boiled eggs, leave them in the pan for 10 to 12 minutes. Then, transfer the eggs to a bowl of ice water for 1 to 3 minutes to stop the cooking process. Now they are ready to peel and eat!
