Pasture raised eggs and chicken not only taste better, they are actually better for you! As compared to conventional or even free range chickens, pasture raised chickens live a much healthier and happier life.
Did you know?
Eggs from hens raised outdoors on pasture have from three to six times more vitamin D than eggs from hens raised in confinement. Pastured hens are exposed to direct sunlight, which their bodies convert to vitamin D and then pass on to the eggs, marked by the deeper yellow color of the yolk.
Pastured eggs also have...
7x more Vitamin E
2x more Vitamin A
7x more beta-carotene
200x more folate
21x more omega 3
Half the cholesterol
Half the saturated fat
Our pasture raised chickens roam freely in the warm sunshine. During the day they forage and eat grass. Factory farms touting "cage free" and "free range" chickens never go outside, they live in giant warehouses that are dirty and full of chicken poop. Put simply, this is a recipe for salmonella and bacterial food contamination. The CDC estimates that Salmonella causes more foodborne illnesses than any other bacteria. In fact, about 1 in every 25 packages of chicken at the grocery store is contaminated with Salmonella.
I know the price is a bit more expensive than traditional chicken meat and eggs, but your body gets more nutrition and you will stay healthy longer. It's an investment in your future!
