We are back in the egg business!
Our hens are raised on pasture; which is an important distinction from free range. While the terms free range or cage free implies access to pasture and the hens being able to move about freely, that is not always the case. Large commercial eggs companies offer free range eggs but their hens may never see grass nor the light of day. While their hens are not kept in cages, they may be kept in overcrowded chicken houses.
We believe access to green and healthy pasture and the sun are vital components to every animal. Our hens spend most of their day outdoors foraging as nature intended.
There are numerous benefits from animals raised on grass.
More specific to eggs, Mother Earth News conducted a study in ’07 that compared eggs from pasture raised hens to conventional eggs. Eggs from pasture raised hens have:
- 1/3 less cholesterol
- 1/4 less saturated fat
- 2/3 more vitamin A 2 times more omega-3 fatty acids
- 3 times more vitamin E
- 7 times more beta carotene
