Our new Pasture-Raised Eggs are locally laid, Certified Humane and USDA Organic! They come from hens raised on two Wisconsin family farms that practice regenerative agriculture. These hens spend their days in open pasture eating grasses, insects and worms, and organic feed and fresh water are provided in the barns. This time spent outside helps the chickens build a strong immune system, leading to healthier eggs. Use these large Grade A brown eggs in your favorite breakfast and egg dishes, for baking or in any recipe that calls for fresh eggs.
Did You Know?
- Pasture-raised chickens must have at least 108 square feet of pasture for each hen. Our hens have at least 300 square feet of pasture, roughly the size of a single-car garage. In contrast, free-range chickens are only required to have two square feet of pasture per hen.
- Cage-free chickens are not actually required to have access to fresh pasture. According to the USDA, cage-free chickens simply need to live their lives outside of cages, meaning some eggs labeled "cage-free" may come from hens living wing-to-wing in enclosed barns.
We're proud to offer a higher standard of eggs laid by hens who have plenty of space to roam and graze!
