Farm Fresh Eggs: Your Opinion Wanted

I've been reading a lot about the benefits of farm fresh eggs versus the normal ones at the grocery store. Yesterday, I bought a dozen eggs at the local farmer's market from my old stomping grounds: Rio Linda, Ca. I got to talk to the owner of Hanks Hens and asked her questions. I left with a dozen eggs costing $5.

Aren't they pretty?!

I haven't yet eaten the new eggs, but I did hard boil a few and Anthony taste tested them. He said the farm fresh ones were a little soft for his liking. I promptly informed him its because they're so fresh and the ones from the grocery store can be up to a month old before they arrive in our fridge. (thank you google)

So, I must know. What are your thoughts on farm fresh eggs?
