Having more cows than people, Montana is well known as a state big on ranching and farming. At Farmer Boy Eggs, we are happy to produce eggs from free-range chickens while also supporting the local economy and providing a healthy food choice to the people of Montana. The best part about Farmer Boy Eggs, however, is how delicious they are to eat! Pair them with a few other local MT staple items and you are on your way to a healthy breakfast that not only tastes good but supports local farmers and ranchers.
