When Locust Street laid eggs

You’ve seen plenty of “organic” offerings at the supermarket. But back in the 1950s and 60s, you could avoid supermarkets entirely and instead visit Locust Street to buy eggs that were still warm from the hen. Heck, you could buy the hen too. Is that organic enough for you?

Kay and Alfred Cabral’s poultry farm is now Sparhawk Drive, off Locust Street. The photos were sent by the Cabrals’ granddaughter, who lived on the farm. She says customers sometimes stopped in just to hear the old stories Kay would tell.
