Pastured Eggs

We currently have Buckeye, Golden Comet, Black Australorp, and Barred Rock hens; all producing nice brown eggs with dark yellow yolks.

The hens are all fed a No-SoyNon-GMO feed mixed here on the farm, and of course all the grass, clover, weeds, bugs, worms, etc they want!

The hens are ranged on pasture for most of the year. When the snow gets too high or the wind a little too cold, they move into our solar heated hoop-house on deep litter bedding to make it a little more comfortable.

"Compared to official U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) nutrient data for commercial eggs, eggs from hens raised on pasture may contain:

  • 1/3 less cholesterol
  • 1/4 less saturated fat
  • 2/3 more vitamin A
  • 2 times more omega-3 fatty acids
                                                                                • 3 times more vitamin E
                                                                                • 7 times more beta carotene"

Fresh eggs are available at the farm throughout the year though the quantities vary with the seasons.
