Our happy and healthy pasture-raised hens have unrestricted access to pasture throughout the day, so they can run around, scratch for bugs and grubs and enjoy a sand bath.
Their daily dietary requirements are supplemented with good quality feed that contains GMO-free grains, no colorants, no antibiotics and no animal additives.
Each pasture allows them space to roam free so there is no fighting and allows us to assess each one throughout the day.
Our eggs are sold under the brand name, Eggcellent Eggs.
Studies have shown that the way hens are raised and cared for directly impacts the nutritional value of the eggs they produce.
A 2015 report showed that free-roaming pasture-raised hens produce eggs which are
66 percent more vitamin A
2 times more omega-3s
3 times more vitamin E
4 times more vitamin D
7 times more beta-carotene3
3 percent less cholesterol content
25 percent less saturated fat
