Why Nellie's?

Sous vide for superior flavor and texture

Our eggs bites are cooked using a gentle sous vide method, which not only retains flavor but ensures they’re cooked exactly the same way every time. The result? An egg-cellent, mouthwatering snack with superior, extra fluffy and creamy texture without the use of fillers (Nellie wouldn’t dream of it!).

Made with Certified Humane Free-Range eggs

Texture matters—just ask Nellie! Like her creamy, luscious egg yolks, our butter has a thicker, richer texture than most you’ll find at the grocery store. This is all thanks to the slow-churning process, which reduces the amount of air that gets trapped in each stick.

No Fillers

Most egg bites you’ll find in grocery stores or at your favorite coffee shop contain unnecessary fillers like cottage cheese or cream. Ours are filler-free, letting the yummy flavor and rich texture of our healthy, wholesome free-range eggs shine!

Grab-and-go

Perfect for lunchboxes or on-the-go snacking, our eggs bites are the egg-pitome of convenience! Simply pop them in the microwave or warm them in a skillet and enjoy on their own or as part of a balanced meal with a whole lotta heart.

FAQs

  • Do you wash your eggs?

    We do, and are required by the FDA’s food safety requirements to use a light, organic approved soap to wash our egg shells. After the eggs are washed, they are sanitized with a mild chlorine solution. Our quality assurance team monitors critical control points like wash- and rinse-water temperature, detergent levels, and more. Additionally, our eggs are routinely tested to ensure their quality. This removes the cuticle (or bloom) from the egg which acts as a natural protective coating, so our eggs must be refrigerated at all times.

  • Where can I buy Nellie’s Free-range Eggs?

    We’re proud to say that our eggs are sold in grocery stores, supermarkets, health food stores, and other locations nationwide. Please check our store locator for a store near you.

  • Are your eggs pasteurized?

    Our eggs are not pasteurized, so we unfortunately cannot recommend that you consume them raw. If you’re interested in using our eggs in a recipe that requires them to remain in raw form, we recommend trying an at-home pasteurization method like this one.

  • What causes double yolks?

    Double yolk eggs are fairly rare (about 1/1000) and tend to be very, very large - in fact, they’re typically graded as “super jumbos” due to their size. These eggs primarily come from younger flocks that are just learning how to lay eggs.

    All of the farm fresh eggs go through the sorting machine together and, once they are identified as super jumbos, are sent to the first packing station where they are hand packed because they are too big for the machine to pack. They are then packaged as jumbos, even though they are technically super jumbos. All day the hand packing station runs, filling jumbo cartons with super jumbos.

    These Super Jumbos are over 50% double yolks. As these cartons are filled, they all go into the same case. So, even though they are rare, double yolk eggs often wind up in the same cartons.

  • Why are your eggs so hard to peel?

    We take great pride in providing eggs that are farm fresh. Subsequently, the fresher the eggs the harder they can be to peel. This is because the egg white or “albumen” in a fresh egg has a relatively low pH level, making it acidic. When cooked, these fresh egg whites bond strongly to the inner shell membrane. As an egg ages, the pH level rises and the inner membrane is less likely to bond to the albumen, so the shell peels off much easier.

    There’s a wise tip on steaming farm fresh eggs from The Prairie Homestead that we’ve found works well for many of our consumers.

  • Are your eggs organic?

    No. Our free-range hens are fed conventional grain from reputable suppliers, but we cannot guarantee that this feed is free of pesticides or GMOs, and therefore it cannot be considered organic. Our eggs are a great choice for customers who would like eggs from hens treated with kindness and to the Certified Humane Free-Range standard, but at a lower cost than organic eggs

    However, our sister brand Pete & Gerry's offer another option for customers who are concerned about pesticides and GMOs. They offer Pete & Gerry's Free-Range Organic eggs. These hens are fed exclusively organic grain which is free of any pesticides or GMOs. Our organic eggs are a little more expensive because of the feed costs, but we feel it is a fair price for bringing organic eggs to market without shortcuts. You can find out more about Pete & Gerry’s eggs here.

  • I can’t find your eggs at my local store. What should I do?

    We find that store managers are eager to carry products that their customers ask them for, so we suggest letting your store manager know that you would like to see our free-range eggs at your store. You can also drop us a line at kindnesscrew@nelliesfreerange.com and we’re happy to see what we can do to help.

  • What causes different egg shell colors?

    Egg shell color is determined by the breed of hen and is often related to the color of the feathers over the hen’s ears. Brown hens, like we have, typically lay brown eggs and white chickens lay white eggs (although there are a few breeds of white chickens with brown ear-feathers that lay brown eggs). Note that shell color is not related to the nutrition or quality of the egg inside. Occasionally, you may also see pigment spots on shells as well. These speckles are typically caused by deposits of extra calcium during the shell calcification process (and they can be quite beautiful!).

  • Why am I seeing paler yolks than usual?

    Natural fluctuations in yolk color can be due to flock age, the weather, the season, and even flock location. The bugs that the hens peck at also can play a part in the yolk color thanks to their high protein content. Each hen is unique and their eggs typically reflect that as well.

    We routinely check our eggs for color and that they are generally much darker than caged, commodity eggs, representing their more natural and varied diet, but sometimes there are lighter yolks as well due to all these variables.
