This Fry’day we want to scramble things up a bit and tell a different kind of tale. An eggs’otic tale of a group of people in Northern Thailand going the eggs’tra mile…
To boil it all down, Hilltribe Organics is a group of farmers in Northern Thailand building for a better tomorrow. In eggs’change for their sustainable farming practices, their free-range chickens produce eggs that are nothing short of egg’cellent and are then sold throughout Thailand.
Meet Phichai, a 53 year old farmer native to Northern Thailand.
He has expanded his family farm to be a part of the Hilltribe Organics community and is seeking a microloan to eggs’pand his free-range chicken operation. And we wanted to be a part of this sustainable eggs’travaganza too with a piece of Thailand that supports Phichai and his fellow eggs’pert farmers.
Here’s to these farmers going the eggs’tra mile to achieve egg’celence and to feeling good—because after all it’s Friday!
-Jack & Alley, Co-Founders
PS. Plus a few more totes looking to eggs'perience the world with you...

Wikipedia (ahem, my favorite source) defines “pay it forward” as “an expression for describing the beneficiary of a good deed repaying the kindness to others instead of to the original benefactor.”
In other words, when someone does something nice for you, you do something nice for someone else, sparking an awesome chain reaction of kindness :)
Season’s greetings to you and your family!
We hope you have a great thyme this season doing your favorite holiday things: from cumin together with your family, to wearing warm and comfy cloves, to chili-ing out and taking some time off to rest. Oh and have fun opening presents too, just remember that “it is always pepper to give than to receive.”
From all of us at Taaluma, we wish you a rose-merry Christmas and a dill-lightful New Year!
