Our eggs are beyond organic.  Our layers are not only fed high quality, organic whole grains (no soy, non-GMO), but they have access to native grasses, forbs, and insects all summer long. They are free to roam during the day and closed up securely away from predators at night.  Their diet is supplemented with surplus from our gardens and orchard, enabling them to produce highly nutritious and flavorful eggs.  

The chickens enjoy fresh, green forage each day while providing excellent fertilizer for our pastures.  Their rotation follows a few days after the cattle so that they can scratch out and eat fly larvae from the cow patties and thus help to keep the fly population down for the cattle.  There are actually enzymes in cow manure which benefit a chicken's digestion, so it is a symbiotically beneficial relationship all around.  

Ethically, we feel that pasturing is one of the most humane ways to raise chickens.  They have plenty of space, sunshine and fresh air - conditions they thrive under.  We want our animals to be able to express their chicken-ness through natural foraging, scratching, dirt bathing and healthy social orders.  We seek to give them an environment that enables behavioral freedom, to minimize stress and just let them be chickens.

You can taste and see the difference.  From the deep yellow yolks, to the stable whites, to the rich flavor, our farm fresh eggs make for a good experience from first crack to last bite.  

Research has shown pastured eggs to contain 66% more vitamin A, 300% more vitamin E, 700% more beta carotene, and 200% more omega-3 fats than standard caged eggs.   Superior care yields superior eggs.
