NORWALK - Southwestern Connecticut egg farmers say they have seen an increase in demand for their products following a salmonella scare. Millions of eggs were recalled due to a fear that they could be contaminated. Due to the recall, many have been visiting Southwestern Connecticut farms to purchase eggs.

Tom Sherwood, of Sherwood Farm, says that his eggs are generally sold after one day at the farm, which helps prevent contamination.

Local farmers are holding the price of their eggs to around $3 to $4 per dozen.
