5 Places to Buy Local Northern Michigan Eggs

While Michigan eggs may be available year-round at the supermarket, they’re actually seasonal. And the protein-packed breakfast staple is in season now.

Birds lay eggs in the spring when there is longer daylight. The extended day length triggers physiological changes which tell birds it’s time to breed.

In Northern Michigan, there are lots of local farms with fresh eggs available for purchase onsite and at farmers markets. To get to know the chickens producing your breakfast, check out these Northern Michigan farms.
