Sharing nutritional information, great recipes, and agricultural insight while representing the commercial egg industry in North Carolina.
To represent North Carolina Egg Farmers in all aspects of production, business and governmental issues.
Our egg farmers are located all over the state from Dare County to Cherokee County. We have approximately 9 million birds which lay about 7 ½ million eggs a day. That is about one bird per person North Carolina. And since the average person eats about 255 eggs per year, we produce enough eggs to feed our residents. Hens lay an egg about once every 26 hours and usually skip a day in the week.
