Pastured Eggs

Our free-range, truly pasture-raised hens are a wonderful group of ladies here on the farm that continue to amaze us!  They spend their days scratching and foraging for food, helping to regenerate our land, all the while producing a perfectly pastured healthy egg with a bright orange yolk.  Our hens don’t just have “access” to pasture, they actually live outside on fresh grass pasture every single day, where they can graze fresh greens, scratch, eat bugs, have a dust bath, bask in the sun and have access to an all-natural, certified organic, certified non-GMO feed. At dusk, they return to their egg-mobile where they spend the night roosting, safe from predators.  An important distinction of our pasture-raised eggs is that their egg-mobile is rotated periodically between pastures, usually following the cattle, to ensure quality forage and hygiene for the hens. This rotation is paramount in providing a healthy and natural ecosystem in which the hens will thrive.

Nutritional studies show that eggs from hens raised on pasture compared to conventionally raised eggs indicate several health benefits, including:

  • 3 - 6 times more vitamin D

  • 70% more vitamin B12

  • 50 - 200% more folate

  • 40 - 60% more vitamin A

  • 30 - 34% less cholesterol

  • 10 - 25% less saturated fat

  • 2 - 7 times more omega-3 fatty acids

  • 2 - 3 times more vitamin E; and

  • times more beta carotene

We are confident that once your experience our nutritious, pasture-raised eggs, produced by hens that are living in their natural outdoor environment, eating a more natural diet, you'll never go back!
