EGGceptional Abilities raises egg-laying hens under organic practices and sells the eggs. This micro-business was started to give meaningful work to autistic individuals.

In the spring of 2015, this small microbusiness was formed for the individuals residing in a Community Integrated Living Arrangement (CILA) located in Lake Bluff, Illinois. The residents were unsuccessful in their traditional day programs and were in desperate need of a program matched to their unique abilities. The goal was to custom design a program to capitalize on the tendency for them to thrive in a structured, controlled, and supportive environment. EGGceptional Abilities is that program.

The mission of this Eggceptional Abilities program is to provide meaningful responsibilities and tasks related to the care of egg laying hens while promoting independence, real life job experience, and engendering self-worth.
Your purchase of these exceptional eggs help with this goal. Thank you for your support.
