Pastured Eggs

The eggs that we currently carry are from pastured chickens. "Cage Free" and "Free Roaming" are misnomers at best.*

The chickens are raised as they had been before the onset of chemical intervention. The hens go about in a natural setting and eat as they please (greenery, bugs); they receive supplemental feed that is not treated with chemical pesticides, and is free of GMOs, hormones, and antibiotics. These are happy, well-cared-for chickens, and you can taste it in the eggs.

*from http://www.satyamag.com/feb06/engebretson.html:

"Under the USDA National Organic Program, all certified organic chicken and egg producers must also provide 'access to the outdoors' for their birds. To meet this requirement, however, many 'certified organic' and 'free-range' birds are crowded into sheds with open siding or with a few enclosed porches, which may be closed off for several months during the year. The birds may never actually set foot outside, and the organic and free-range standards do not outline any other animal welfare criteria, such as the amount of space individual birds must have."
