Our Local Egg Source: Hickman’s Family Farm
Since the day we opened our doors in 1984, Hickman’s Family Farms has been our local source for eggs. Sharman Hickman has personally delivered eggs to our restaurant to satisfy our Thom wh always insists on the freshest eggs. Once she even drove from their farm in Buckeye at 3am to make sure she was at T.C. Eggington’s in time to make the omelets. Together, these two family businesses have shared a lot of laughs along the way. Click over to our post about Hickman’s Family Farms to read all about their amazing history together.

Egg Fun Facts
T.C. Eggington’s orders on average 8,000 eggs per WEEK!
Eggs contain the highest quality of protein.
You can tell if an egg is raw or hard-boiled by spinning it; the hard-boiled will spin evenly while the raw will wobble.
The freshness of an egg can be determined with water. Place an egg in water and if it floats, it’s old. If it sinks, it’s fresh.
Egg whites and egg yolks have the same amount of protein. But the yolk has a higher calorie content.
Chef hats traditionally have pleats equal to the number of ways that you can cook an egg.
It takes a hen between 24-36 hours to lay an egg. Once laid, the development of a new egg starts after just 30 minutes.
A hen’s diet determines the color of the egg yolk.
