DYK? When eggs leave the farm, they go through a routine and strenuous process before arriving at the grocery store. During the Ag Education on the Move (AEOTM) program, students learn about the process from farm to store, and how eggs are:  collected, washed, candled, sorted, shipped, sold, and finally ENJOYED! Eggs are packed with protein and provide numerous nutritional benefits. Yum.
