Why Choose Organic Eggs?
Why Choose Organic Eggs?
Organic eggs are made according to certain production standards. Studies have shown organic fruits and vegetables may contain up to 40 percent more antioxidants than conventional equivalents which is great for the chicken and your egg because the chickens are fed 100% organic feed. Additionally, organic farming is less damaging to the environment.
At Eben-Haezer Poultry Ranch we are changing to provide a better place for the commercial poultry operation. We are moving one step at a time to provide a better life for our birds and we feel strongly that this is the direction we should be headed.
Pasture Raised Organic Hens
What are Pastured Chickens?
Pasture raised chicken live in small number in our mobile barns in the fields where they are able to roam free eating bugs, fresh vegitation and the organic feed.
We rotate the mobile barns throughout the fields so our girls are constantly having new areas to explore and vegitation to eat.
Are Pasture Raised Eggs Healthier?
Mother Earth News conducted an egg testing project in 2007, and found that eggs produced by truly free-ranging hens were far superior to those produced by battery cage hens. The study involved 14 flocks across the United States whose eggs were tested by an accredited Portland, Oregon, laboratory.
They found that the benefits of pasture raised eggs include:
1/3 less cholesterol
1/4 less saturated fat
5 times more vitamin D
2/3 more vitamin A
2 times more omega-3 fatty acids
3 times more vitamin E
7 times more beta carotene
They also found that 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 their eggs. Eating just two of these eggs will give you from 63-126% of the recommended daily intake of vitamin D!
