Pastured Eggs

Better than Free Range

You won't find poultry houses here. We have multiple flocks housed in a variety of mobile coops that rotate over 22 acres. Rather than allowing them to free range and revisit their favorite places everyday, we move them to new locations to ensure a fresh supply of forage. More importantly, it gives the location they left behind time to rest and recuperate from their activity. We supplement our hen's diet with a locally milled, organic feed that is custom made for the breeds that we raise. The results are the most nutrient dense eggs possible to produce. If you would like eggs for eating and baking (as opposed to hatching), you may contact us below. Eggs are currently $5/dozen.

Why Pastured?

    A study involving 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

  • 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!

Note: this benefit comes only from hens that are free to graze fresh greens, eat bugs, and bask in the sun. 99% of the eggs sold in the supermarket do not meet this criterion.

Even though the label says that the eggs are “certified organic” or come from “cage free” or “free range” hens, or from hens fed an “all-vegetarian” diet (Remember: chickens are NOT vegetarians), this is no guarantee that the hens had access to the outdoors or pasture—which makes all the difference.

Egg Production in Action


Each egg is inspected right here in the kitchen of our farm house built in 1927.


Our flocks range from a mobile coop protected by a watchful rooster.


All of our mobile coops are built in-house. We use a variety of designs that meet the different requirements of our flocks. 


The flocks follow our horses in a grazing rotation. The  rotation keeps the pasture nutrients in balance.
