Why Pastured Eggs?

Eggs are one of the most nutrition packed foods you can eat. Not just any egg, but eggs from hens free to roam on lush pastures.   Egg producing hens need to forage green grass and seeds, eating worms and bugs for protein and a balanced diet as God designed for them.  And being outdoors in the sunshine puts essential vitamins A and D in their eggs.  

Pastured eggs are one of the most economical ways to increase the nutrients in your family's diet. They are very versatile as scrambled, omelets, home made mayonnaise, smoothies, quiche, deviled, boiled for salads, and more.

There have been studies done showing that compared to supermarket eggs, pastured eggs have:

  • 5 times more Vitamin D
  • 2/3 more Vitamin A
  • 2 times more Omega-3 fatty acids
  • 3 times more Vitamin E
  • 7 times more Beta Carotene

Think about that.  You would  have to eat 5 supermarket eggs to get the Vitamin D that is in one pastured egg.

Some of the health benefits from pastured eggs:

  • supports healthy vision
  • helps protect from sun damage
  • reduces risk of colon and breast cancer
  • provides all 8 essential protein building amino acids

It is also important that the hens are not eating GMO feed.  We feed our hens a non-gmo feed that is also soy free. Raw milk and kefir from our cows are always available free choice.  

We do our best to provide you with great tasting and healthy eggs straight from the farm, always fresh!
