Our eggs are expensive. What makes them worth the extra money? Our eggs are grown locally in Sonoma County, humanely on a farm priding itself on it’s sustainable practices.
Our eggs are Grade AA and CA SEFS compliant. Our chickens are fed organic grains containing no GMO’s or antibiotics. Also, because our chickens are allowed to roam in a healthy pasture, they lay less eggs and more energy goes into the creation of each egg.
Our eggs are healthier and they taste like it. You will notice that the yolks stand up taller on fresh pasture raised eggs. The yolks are much richer, darker in color, and the whites don’t run like water.
WHY ARE PASTURE RAISED EGGS HEALTHIER?
A study in MOTHER EARTH NEWS found that compared to conventional American eggs, real free-range (pasture raised) eggs have less cholesterol and saturated fat, plus more vitamins A and E, beta carotene and polyunsaturated omega-3 fatty acids.
Most of the eggs currently sold in supermarkets are nutritionally inferior to eggs produced by hens raised on pasture. That’s the conclusion we have reached following completion of the 2007 Mother Earth News egg testing project. Their testing has found that, compared to official U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) nutrient data for commercial eggs, eggs from hens raised on pasture may 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
