What are pasture raised eggs?
Pasture raised eggs means that our hens are outside in fresh pasture all day everyday. They live in a mobile chicken caravan that is shifted onto new fresh pasture multiple times a week. Their food and water is outside where they also forage for bugs and eat the pastures.
We currently have 450 hens, approx. 18 hens per hectare, which means our stocking densities are a far cry from the maximum 2,500 hens per hectare for standard free range systems.
We only shut the doors to the caravan when we are moving the hens or if it's a particularly cold and windy night.
Pasture raised eggs have been found to be more nutritious than conventional eggs (click through to our FAQ's to read more) - goes to show you are what you eat!
