Egg Prices - Grain Prices - Recession

To all our loyal customers, I want to say, "THANK YOU!" for making our eggs the most popular eggs at all of the Whole Foods Market locations.

This past year has been tumultuous, to say the least. Corn fluctuated over $4.00 per bushel during the year, grain prices shot sky high - and so egg prices had to go up.

Then almost as suddenly the recession hit us, and grain prices came back down closer to a normal level. This happened just as we raising our prices. We held off as long as we could - and now - WE ARE ABLE TO MOVE THE PRICE DOWN AGAIN.... This is due to the fact that corn and other grains seem to be staying in a lower price range.

I know this has strained your food budgets, and the up and down of the market has made us all wary and a bit confused about where we are headed next.

To reward your loyalty, World's Best Eggs & Whole Foods Market are featuring a ROLL BACK SALE OF $4.99 PER DOZEN. This sale will last for two weeks, from April 22 through May 6th.

Then we will settle in on a price that both reflects your food dollar and our production costs.

You can go to and see that we had our eggs tested, and that in every nutritional category they are significantly higher than regular eggs. In most cases it takes from 1.5 to 2 regular super market eggs to equal the nutritional values in one of our eggs. The statistics can be seen at the website above.

We would really like to hear from you if you feel like sharing your experiences in buying eggs for your family.

Thanks Again,

Jeremiah Cunningham for all the folks at World's Best Eggs and Coyote Creek Farm.
