Every gourmand knows that the best eggs are local. Production tends to slack in the winter months but “the girls” at Dale & Bette’s Farm, immediately next to Bay Burger on the Sag Harbor-Bridgehampton Turnpike, are as busy as ever. What’s easier to make than eggs? Open daily “farmers’ hours,” dawn to dusk.
