These eggs are from quail raised with no antibiotics or hormones, in open barns, and humane, stress-free conditions. Good things come in small shells. Quail eggs are a fraction the size of chicken eggs but pack more nutrients and minerals. Some consider them more delicious than chicken eggs, and they are enjoyed in many cuisines around the world. Quail eggs are perfect for hors d'oeuvres, canapes, and garnishes. Try them hard-boiled, cut in half, topped with a little crème fraîche and a dollop of caviar.

Boiling times: 21/2 minutes = soft-boiled egg | 3 minutes = medium-boiled egg | 4 minutes = fully hard-boiled egg. Safe handling instructions: To prevent illness from bacteria, keep quail eggs refrigerated, cook eggs until yolks are firm and cook foods containing quail eggs thoroughly.
Our mission is to find farmers that share our vision of a more humane and sustainable way of rearing livestock. We respect our place in the food chain and see farmers as true stewards of the land and environment. This is why we build real relationships with our farmers and work only with those who respect nature and focus on the best animal welfare practices.
Our quail comes from a second-generation family-owned farm that raises the Pharaoh, also called the Coturnix, breed of this delicate little game bird. Coturnix breed quail offer a richer flavor and higher moisture content than the more common Bobwhite breed.
The farm places great emphasis on humane and stress-free conditions for the quail, raising them in spacious, open barns. The birds eat a natural and wholesome grain diet of pesticide-free corn and soybeans. There are never any hormones, growth stimulants or antibiotics used.
