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 suppliment.
