A Short time ago I was asked by the American Egg Board to create an egg with a very special destination; The White House! What a great honor this is, to be part of an American tradition that is over a century old. With the help of Oakdell Egg Farms I was able to find the perfect brown egg for this project. I wanted to use a brown egg because the brown color can actually be carefully removed showing white underneath. Also, Oakdell Farms was able to supply some sure jumbo eggs. I thought I would need big egg to be able to incluse all the symbology I had in mind for this project. A brown eggshell allowed me to have 2 colors without adding to the eggshell. I also chose an omega-3 egg because both the First Lady and I are interested in maintaining good health. The final reason I chose Oakdell Farms is because I wanted to use a Utah source for the egg. This is my way of sending a part of our great state to the White House to celebrate Easter of 2013.
