What's So Special About
Pasture Raised Eggs Anyway?
A study conducted by researchers in Penn State's College of Agricultural Sciences has shown that eggs produced by chickens allowed to forage in pastures are higher in some beneficial nutrients.
"Compared to eggs of the commercial hens, eggs from pastured hens eggs had twice as much vitamin E and long-chain omega-3 fats, more than double the total omega-3 fatty acids, and less than half the ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acids," she said. "Vitamin A concentration was 38 percent higher in the pastured hens' eggs than in the commercial hens' eggs, but total vitamin A per egg did not differ."
Our pasture raised eggs are from happy hens who have year round access to free range, and are supplemented with organic feed when they aren't out foraging due to weather. Our chickens are 100% cage-free, and only return to the coop for protection in the evenings and bad weather days. Happy hens lay delicious, nutritious eggs.
