How can I make peeling Hard Boiled eggs easier?

I'm using farm fresh eggs and, for some reason find it difficult to peel them after hard boiling.  Any recommendations?

farm fresh eggs are the freshest.......store bought eggs do better to hardboil as they are older eggs...............see if this will help you......farm eggs into cold water in stainless steel pan or pot.....add just enough more cold water to cover the eggs, add salt and 1/4 cup white vinegar..........cover bring to boil.............keep lid on turn off the heat.......let them sit for 20 minutes.......................take out hot water by gradually adding cold water..............then dump that off and add more cold water......let them sit in the refrigerator until very cold in the water..............later take them out....and start to gently tap on the counter and peel them under cold running water.  I use farm fresh to cook eggs for breakfast but change to store bought to boil.

Thank You!  Will try this next time.
add some salt & vinegar to water to keep them from cracking.
It is easier to peel eggs that are a little older when making hard boiled eggs.  If you do not have a choice follow a recipe closely for hard boiled eggs being careful not to over cook them.  Then peel while they are still warm under cool running water.

Please add  salt to the water in ehich you boil your eggs. It gets easier to peel.
