What are pasture raised eggs? They’re eggs from chickens that roam free throughout the day and are able to enjoy natural vegetation, bugs, and sunbathing in the lush pastures, fields, or hillsides. They are provided not only an organic diet but also and organic lifestyle that mimics that of their natural habitat while maintaining the sustainability of the environment.

Mother Earth News conducted an egg testing project in 2007 and discovered that eggs produced by truly free-ranging pastured hens were far superior to those produced by battery caged 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!

    Apparently you were out of the organic pastured eggs, so I received a different type of egg. I would rather have received a phone call, text, or email to give me a
    Choice of whether I preferred a different type of egg. I didn’t want the eggs that were in my box.

      Hi Julie,
      Thank you for letting us know. We are out of stock on Pastured Eggs and Happy Hens isn’t making any available to us for the foreseeable future. I sent everyone who had a regular order an email about it and asking if they would prefer no eggs or the free range from the sister farm. If we didn’t hear back, we sent on the eggs. We’re very sorry we disappointed you. I believe we credited you for the $3 difference in cost.
      Kind regards,
      Janis Garcia
