Yay! I found a couple local farms to get my eggs! There is nothing like farm fresh, pasture raised eggs....They are proven to be wayyyyy better for you than conventional eggs you find in grocery stores. I also love getting eggs & supporting local farmers! If I am not buying local...I always look for pasture raised eggs...I don't even trust egg cartons that say cage free...That could mean they live in confined buildings w/o sunlight and land to forage in.
In comparison to a conventional egg, pasture-raised eggs 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
The sunlight exposure a hen gets gives their eggs 4-6 more times Vitamin D
The grass they eat promotes higher levels of folic acid, and even measurable levels of Vitamin C
Happy Hens Lay Healthy Eggs!
And wouldn't you want the best for your family?
