Pasture-raised Eggs



Pasture-raised eggs, laid by hens that have access to the outdoors and a more natural diet, offer several notable health benefits compared to conventional eggs. These benefits stem from the improved living conditions and dietary choices of the hens, which result in more nutrient-dense and healthier eggs.

Pasture-raised eggs tend to have a richer nutritional profile. They contain higher levels of essential nutrients like vitamins (particularly vitamin D, B12, and folate) and minerals (such as selenium and iodine). Vitamin D, for example, is crucial for bone health and immune function, and it’s often lacking in the diets of many people.

Pasture-raised eggs are also higher in beneficial omega-3 fatty acids, including alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), which supports heart health and inflammation reduction. These eggs also have a better balance of omega-3 to omega-6 fatty acids, contributing to overall well-being.

Additionally, pasture-raised eggs are often produced by hens that are not treated with synthetic hormones or antibiotics, providing a cleaner and more natural option for consumers concerned about these additives in their food.

Eggs are a nutritious food that can be part of a healthy diet. They provide a good source of vitamins and minerals, including vitamin A, vitamin B12, riboflavin, and selenium.  Eggs are also a good source of choline, an important nutrient that is involved in brain and nervous system function.

Pastured eggs are richer in vitamins A and E, as well as omega-3s. Hens that get to spend time in the sun also lay eggs that contain significantly more vitamin D.
