Going the Eggs'tra Mile

Feel Good Friday

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...

Kigali is a beautiful hilly city, quite green and very clean. People are super nice and eager to tell you about their history, including the genocide. Rwanda does not allow plastic bags, so, unlike other African countries, there is no plastic flying around or laying on the streets.
