Our layer hens live on our pastures. They are never confined to a building. They forage freely on acres of lush pasture deriving up to 90% of their diet from the land. They receive as a supplement only certified organic whole grains, kelp (a sea grass, for complex and complete micro and macro minerals in perfect balance), aragonite (for calcium - more digestible than oyster shells) and a small amount of fish meal if protein supplement is needed. Almost all of their protein is fresh from the insect life in the pastures. Even in winter they kick up leaves to find the over-wintering larvae.
Soy free eggs! We never feed our poultry any soy.
Due to the benefits of a natural diet on pasture, our eggs are very nutritious and flavorful with dark orange yolks, and are better than the organic standard of the National Organic Program. (Even organic eggs in your supermarket are from hens that do not live on pasture). Reports from the USDA and university studies show that pastured eggs contain on average:
40% more vitamin A
100% more vitamin E
300% more beta carotene
400% more omega-3 fatty acids
Higher levels of carotenoids.
Each dozen is a mix of white, brown, and green/blue eggs.
Fresh! ~ typically you'll be receiving them a day after lay.
Supermarket eggs can be up to two months old!
