Foods for a Healthy Planet
In addition to wanting to bring great products to the market, we also wanted to do this in a manner that most closely mimics nature. This has brought us to begin incorporating regenerative agriculture practices.
Our cows and laying hens are pastured on shared lands. The cows are left out to graze a relatively small patch of grass. Once the cattle have properly grazed, the grass is allowed to rest for a few days. After a few days of rest, we move the chickens to the pasture. The rest period allows for the cow nutrients (manure) to grow the chickens’ favorite treats, high protein bugs. The bugs and beautiful pasture will make up the majority of the chickens’ diet for approximately 8 to 9 months of the year. This practice is what gives the eggs a bright orange yolk and strong egg white. The remainder of the year, the chickens will still have access to free ranging, but feed will need to be supplemented.
