Everyone eats eggs, so why not eat eggs that are truly delicious and healthy? Our eggs feature hard shells and firm, deep orange yolks with dense nutrients and high Omega-3.
We have a flock of Black Australorp hens that are loving life, free-ranging on pasture, getting exercise, producing beautiful, healthy brown eggs. They feast on grass, greens, seeds, bugs for about 80% of their diet, supplemented by free-choice non-medicated, balanced laying mash.
The hen house is a refurbished travel trailer that we’ve dubbed the “Chick Magnet.” Every few days we move the Chick Magnet to a different spot on the pasture. The chickens get fresh greens, bugs, plenty of shade and fresh water -- and they fertilize the pasture as a bonus. The chickens scratch and feed most of the day (except when they’re in a laying box), and re-enter the trailer at night to roost.
Some grocery stores sell what they call “cage-free” or “Omega-3” eggs. These chickens actually spend all their time crowded in a yard with nothing but dirt, eating nothing but dry mash. Our chickens, by contrast, are truly free range, enjoying the good life on pasture.
Guard dogs protect our chickens, and the birds have even learned to sense aerial predators (we have a healthy population of hawks and owls). They quickly run under the trailer.
We are making deliveries once a week to the Wasatch Front. We obviously can’t compete on price with the gigantic factory producers. Smith’s sells organic “cage-free” eggs for $3.49 a dozen. (Again, cage-free doesn’t mean they eat greens and bugs. It just means they’re in a crowded yard instead of tiny cages.) Another natural food store in Salt Lake County sells free-range eggs for $5 a dozen.
As an introductory offer, we’re selling our natural, free-range eggs for only $3 a dozen.
