These eggs are laid by hens who spend their days digging and scratching out of doors where they get a very healthy diet of food scraps, bugs and barnyard bedding; basically the food hens were born to eat. Like other laying hens, they are fed grain to supplement their diet. We source these eggs from farms dedicated to feeding their animals grain that is free of GMOs.
GMO free grain is slightly more expensive than conventional grain, which is reflected in the price of the eggs.
Jericho Settlers Farm is located in Jericho Vermont. These are truly free range hens and the farm is a diverse vegetable and meat farm with greenhouse and field production on excellent Winooski river bottom soils. While the eggs are not organic, their farm is Certified Organic.
Maple Wind Farm is a Meat and Vegetable farm located in Huntington, Vermont. Beth and Bruce raise these laying hens on their home farm as well as as on pasture with their beef and broiler chickens. While the eggs are not organic, their farm is Certified Organic.
Pigasus Meats is a 170-acre diversified livestock operation run by Phelan and Kelsey O'Connor in South Hero, VT. Their hens our raised in moveable greenhouses during the warmer months and a solar hoop barn during the winter months. In addition to what they forage on pasture, their hens receive a GMO-free feed from Morrison's Custom Feeds. The hens help to maintain and balance the pasture ecosystem within their farm, all the while providing healthy, nutritious eggs!
