article Benefits of Pasture-Raised Chicken Eggs

We know it can be overwhelming to navigate all of the labels at the grocery store. That is why we have set out on this journey! Life is so busy and marketing makes it confusing to understand. We wanted to simplify the process of choosing what is best to feed you and your family.

We have heard all the labels when it comes to eggs. So what's the difference between "cage-free" and "pasture-raised"? Although cage-free may sound better than the standard egg, it doesn't mean much except that they are not confined to a cage. They could still be confined to a room, or enclosed area inside.

Our pasture-raised chickens have a beautiful life as they freely roam around our farm and graze naturally. We open up the coop doors in the morning and help guide them back into the barn at night. This lifestyle isn't just better for the chickens but also for us who consume the eggs. Let's learn what makes these nutrient-dense eggs better* than other grocery store eggs...

Benefits of Pasture-Raised Chicken Eggs:

  • 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
  • Plus, with our chickens spending time outside they pass along 3 - 6 times more vitamin D naturally!

In addition, experts propose that shifting away from industrial farming models to pasture-based models is the most effective way to prevent the spread of Avian Influenza, which caused 52.4 million poultry to become infected in the US and subsequently caused an increase in the price of eggs. Pasturing poultry is beneficial to their health, creates bird-friendly environments, and ensures that supply chains are transparent and sustainable.
