PASTURE RAISED EGGS
Brunty Farms is known for our delicious and nutritious eggs. The lucky ladies that get to call our farm home are some of the happiest and healthiest in the industry. They spend their days from sun up to sun down foraging for various grasses, weeds, insects, and seeds. Clover is one of their favorite treats! Our ladies get to enjoy the sunshine and do all of their chicken like activites free of cages or confinement.
The yolks from our eggs are a rich golden yellow color, almost orange in many cases. These eggs are packed full of flavor, which change from season to season. The hens forage for the most pasture from May-August and during the winter months we supplement them with extra alfalfa hay and fodder.
Our hens are also:
Fed non-GMO grains sourced from local feed mills.
Have a minimum of 140 square feet of pasture per bird.
Are never administered any antibiotics.
Compared to official USDA nutrient data for commerical eggs, eggs from hens raised on pasture may contain:
1/3 less cholesterol
1/4 less saturated fat
2/3 more vitamin A
3 times more vitamin E
7 times more beta carotene
2 times more omega-3 fatty acida
