Pastured Eggs and Chicken

There are 3 types of egg production: caged, free-range, and pastured.  Caged, is exactly that.  Free-range is sometimes mistaken for pastured due to the word - range.  Consumers associate Free-Range with 'Out on the open range,' but the actuality is they are still housed indoors just not confined to only a cage.  Pastured is where the birds have actual access to grass, dirt and grubs.  This diet BOOSTS Omega fats, yielding a dark, orangish colored yolk.

Along with fresh air and a variety of insects and grasses, our birds are fed a Certified Organic Soy-Free pellet and a free choice mineral supplement.

Most all egg producing farms will use light in the coop to regulate the chicken's laying cycle.  We also utilize light but take it a step further.  Our bulbs are colored, aka Light Therapy.  A pattern of 3 colors targets certain organs and promotes a general calm and rejuvenation.  Just one more Minor Detail, researched and implemented by Birchwood Farms in an attempt to provide an even better product for you and your family.
