Our beef, pork, lamb, and chickens are pasture raised with no hormones or antibiotics. Our feed does not contain any GMO grains. Our fresh seafood is supplied by Capeside Fish Company in Rainbow City, AL.
Pastured Eggs are considered by top experts to be one of the all time best SuperFoods. Easy to get at almost any farmers market, pastured eggs are an inexpensive way to add a lot of nourishment to your family's meal.
Eggs from hens raised on pasture are far more nutritious than eggs from confined hens in factory farms. Test results show that pastured egg producers are kicking the commercial industry's derriere when it comes to vitamin D! Eggs from hens raised on pasture show 4 to 6 times as much vitamin D as typical supermarket eggs.
Eggs from hens allowed to peck on pasture are a heck of a lot better than those from chickens raised in cages! Most of the eggs currently sold in supermarkets are nutritionally inferior to eggs produced by hens raised on pasture. That’s the conclusion we have reached following completion of the 2007 Mother Earth News egg testing project. Our testing has found that, compared to official U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) nutrient data for commercial eggs, eggs from hens raised on pasture may contain:
• 1/3 less cholesterol
• 1/4 less saturated fat
• 2/3 more vitamin A
• 2 times more omega-3 fatty acids
• 3 times more vitamin E
• 7 times more beta carotene
It's important to note that "free range" supermarket eggs are nutritionally similar to conventional eggs. The reason pastured eggs are so nutritious is that the chickens get to supplement their diets with abundant fresh plants and insects. (Having little doors on the side of a giant smelly barn just doesn't replicate that.)
