Laying Hens

Pastured & Free-Ranged

  • Raised on pasture from March-November where they chase bugs, forage for their food and take dust baths. 

  • Moved indoors on deep bedding from December-February where they are supplemented with alfalfa hay.

  • Provided shelters they can come and go from freely while on pasture. 

  • Supplemented with non-GMO grains and organic supplements. 

  • Kept safe from predators with electric netting and livestock guard dogs. 

  • Pastured hens that are free ranging produce eggs with more Omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin A as well as less cholesterol than the conventionally raised variety. 

  • Available at the various markets we attend and through our CSA
