About Our Eggs

What's pasture-raised anyway?


Pasture-raised eggs are from hens who forage and exercise on green fields.

Outside every day which is weather permitting, they’re salad-eating, poultry athletes who get to run, feel the wind in their wings and forage for grasses, clover and tasty bugs.

In the US, 91% of all birds are caged and housed in warehouses of 300,000 chickens or more.

Locally Laid eggs are MICRO-BROOD with flocks of approximately 3,000 birds, foraging & exercising on pasture. The result is a healthier, happy chicken and a better egg.

For these birds, life is good. And to show their gratitude, they produce a healthier egg.

Under the force of a whisk, the egg whites whip into near-Himalayan peaks of remarkable volume and durability; add sugar, and they’re transformed into the most lustrous, satiny meringue imaginable.
