Eggs from Hens on Pasture

Our hens are truly happy… ranging freely on the pasture (or around the farmhouse!), scratching and pecking gleefully, working their steady job of pest management while fertilizing the land and producing tasty eggs. Our hens are content to be outside, “playing” in the glorious sunshine.  This out of doors life and natural vitamin D exposure gives their eggs a beautiful golden yolk, providing a nutrient dense, versatile food!  They are moved every 2-3 days to a fresh area of pasture, typically following our small herd of cows, and are supplemented with a locally grown,  non-GMO, chemical-free feed.

Our eggs have: 1/3 less cholesterol, 1/4 less saturated fat, 2/3 more vitamin A, three times more vitamin E, seven times more beta carotene, and more than two times the amount of omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3 fatty acids help reduce inflammation and are thought to have many health benefits including: reducing the risk of heart disease and stroke, helping with hypertension, ADHD, joint problems and skin ailments. Omega-3 fatty acids are “essential” fatty acids. This means that our body cannot make them: we must get them in our diet.
