What are “Pastured Eggs”? While there’s no national standard for this term, for us it means that our chickens spend their days in a pasture with sunlight, fresh air, and plenty of bugs/worms/plants. The girls have 24-hour access to our mobile coop for shade, for protection from inclement weather, for sleeping, and for laying eggs.
Are your eggs organic? Nope. The organic certification costs too much to be profitable for a small farm like ours. However, we meet or exceed organic standards with our pastures, supplemental feed, and health practices. Come see for yourself.
Where do I get my eggs? We are working on some drop-off points in SW Littleton, Highlands Ranch, and Castle Rock. Watch for more details soon. Or you may arrange a time to pick up your eggs at the farm which is located in Sedalia, 14 miles SW of Hwys 85 & 67.
Should I wash the eggs? Yes. We do not wash our eggs because that process removes the natural protective layer applied by the chicken. This layer, called the bloom or cuticle, is essential for keeping out germs that would infect the eggs as well as air that would age the eggs quicker. Our eggs are naturally kept clean from the start through good coop management practices. However, the all-knowing USDA suggests thorough cleaning and cooking to avoid any potential baddies.
