Truly Free Range Eggs
Eggs from chickens who have access to pasture are higher in omega-3s and vitamin E than chickens who do not. Our chickens are supplemented with organic grains. Eggs from pastured chickens are also much higher in two carotenes, lutein and zeaxanthin, which are important antioxidants which affect the health of our eyes. Our eggs are also many times higher in folic acid and vitamin B12 than conventional eggs.
Since our cows live in healthy conditions and eat a diet appropriate for ruminants, their own health benefits, as does our own. According to eatwild.com, “Meat from grassfed animals has about half the fat as meat from grain-fed animals and significantly fewer calories.” Meat from grass-fed animals is also dramatically higher in CLA, or conjugated linoleic acid, four times higher in vitamins E, A, D, and omega-3 fatty acids.
The health benefits of eating pastured pork are dramatic. Pastured meats are much higher (as much as hundreds of times higher) in vitamin E and “good fats” like omega-3s and CLA, or conjugated linoleic acid, than conventional pork. There’s an unbelievable taste difference between our pork and conventional pork. Our pork is processed naturally and our bacon is nitrate-free.
