Some people climb mountains. Others run marathons.
And then there are the people who eat emu eggs.
And cost $20 a piece.
Now, emus may be native to Australia, but the growing popularity and high market value of their eggs have made farming them locally a great investment. Farms like Roaming Acres in neighboring New Jersey have over 20 emus on site (and ostriches, too).
And while empty egg shells are sold to artists and some eggs go to commercial kitchens, it’s the home cook looking to impress their friends that are driving the business.
Emu eggs — the Mount Everest of the dinner party.
