Are All Eggs Created Equal?
Most definitely not. Research studies have concluded that eggs produced by chickens raised on pasture and feasting on natural forages, grasses, seeds, and insects are healthier than commercial grade, “cage-free, or free range” eggs. Farm Fresh, Pastured Eggs have twice as much vitamin E and more than twice as many Omega-3 Fatty Acids. Pastured eggs were also found to be higher in vitamin A, have three times the amount of vitamin D, and are lower in LDL Cholesterol
Conventional, Cage Free and Free Range Egg definitions differ from Pasture Raised depending on the research source, but generally speaking only Free Range and Pastured Eggs have access to outdoor foraging, grasses, and guaranteed sunlight hours.
Our chickens at Heart and Soul Farm NC have 24/7 access to grasses, forages, and insects. They have a mobile chicken coop with nesting boxes that provides shelter and nesting boxes when the chickens decide it is needed. They come out of their roosts in the morning and know to put themselves to bed a night.
A more natural way to raise chickens that results in a superior egg.
