Fourth-generation chicken farmer Chris Peterson inspects eggs over the candler, part of a machine that checks egg fertility and shell quality. The machine is crucial in handling the around 6,800 eggs per day from over 7,000 chickens at Petersons’ Upland Farm. The Wahiawa farm has been helping feed Oahu residents since 1910. Drop by the Highway Inn or Michel’s for breakfast to sample the eggs, or buy direct at the farm.
