These pastured happy hens roam free as they forage for clover, seeds, bugs and worms. Their diet is supplemented by grains, minerals, and vitamins without antibiotics or hormones. Pastured eggs are known to contain higher amounts of vitamins A, E, Omega-3 fatty acids and less cholesterol than conventionally farmed eggs. Break open a pastured egg beside a factory egg and you will see and taste the obvious difference.
