These eggs are laid by hens who spend their days digging and scratching out of doors for a good part of their sustenance. They are fed a mix of conventional grain, food scraps, bugs and barnyard bedding.
These eggs are not organic, however, the hens receive no synthetic supplements or medicated feed, and forage outside all year long.
Our current suppliers of eggs each week:

They run a diversified organic farm featuring eggs, vegetables and pork on just over 50 acres. Thier hens range outside during the warmer months and spend winters fertilizing the greenhouses.
