Description

We are a small family run farm and raise heritage breed chickens for "almost organic" eggs. Our chickens are pasture raised and free to range. This means that the chickens roam the pastures all day and only come in the barn to lay eggs and roost at night. While roaming the pastures, our chickens eat all kinds of seeds, green plants, insects, bugs, and grain. Our chickens have never been vaccinated or been given any antibiotics. We never feed our hens medicated feed and no pesticides are ever used on the pastures.The pastures are seeded with organic seed. We only feed our chickens an all-natural feed with no medication or antibiotics, it is just not certified as organic, hence my claim of "almost organic" eggs. Our chickens tend to be happier and lay more nutrious eggs. More great news about free-range and pasture raised chickens. Mother Earth News has done several nutrient tests on supermarket eggs vs. pastured eggs. The results show that the eggs from pasture raised chickens are far superior then supermarket eggs. Their tests found that eggs from chickens raised on pasture, as compared to the official USDA data for factory farm eggs contain: 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 4 to 6 times more vitamin D
