Our hens are housed in a wooden barn, comparable to the Ritz for people, where they eat (high quality certified organic - soy free feed, no antibiotics, no hormones, no animal byproducts, no food from GMO crops); a diet supplemented and enhanced by wild/edible flowers and plants as well as fruits and veggies from our grove, lay their eggs, porch and sleep on ladders as they love to sleep high off the ground.
They love to exercise, climb on the trees and pick the fruits - many of us enjoy sunbathing on the sand; they enjoy sunbathing on the soil. These are truly happy hens that produce safe, healthy and nutritious organic eggs. We go to extremes to safeguard their well being - no shortcuts here or anywhere else.
Studies have found that hens raised under the conditions outlined above produce eggs with:
High amounts of vitamins D, K2, B-12, folate, riboflavin, zinc, calcium, choline, DHA, EPA, ALA and AA, in addition to producing a tastier egg with more flavor, color and texture - a true super food.
- 2 times more omega-fatty acids;
- 7 times more beta carotene.
The floors are concrete covered with pine shavings to keep humidity out and maintain cleanliness. They have continuous access to outdoors where they pasture, enjoy the bugs, sun, fresh air and shade under the guava trees.
