How our laying hens are raised

Our hens spend their days outdoors roaming the pasture, scratching around for bugs, eating their greens, and laying eggs. Eggs are gathered by hand multiple times a day, sorted, cleaned and packaged for sale. Each flock of hens is managed in a rotational system with portable henhouse and portable fencing that all gets moved once or twice a week to fresh pasture. This rotation process is what keeps the hens healthy, and minimizes their impact on the pasture. They get to eat the grass, but then the grass gets a chance to re-grow while the hens move on to new ground. The hens eat feed that is custom-mixed at a local mill, but it’s all the greens, exercise, fresh air and sunlight that are key to getting highly nutritious eggs, high in omega 3’s and vitamin E, which also make the yolks so deep an orange-yellow. Healthy for you, the hens and our farm!
