Our hens are raised outside on pasture grass where they are free to forage, scratch and dust bathe out in the sunshine and fresh air. Their access to sun and grass allow them to absorb more vitamins, which they pass on to our delicious eggs. If you compare one of our eggs side by side with a store bought egg, the color difference in the yolks is obvious. Ours are a bright, beautiful orange, and the store bought eggs are pale yellow. This is due to the beta-carotene content of pasture-raised eggs.
The other advantage of having our chickens on pasture is that they fertilize our fields and eat parasites that could otherwise potentially infect our cattle.
To lay their eggs and to sleep, our hens have access to portable houses that are moved daily to fresh pasture.
