Why Local Yolk

 

Pasture-Raised: We treat our ladies with care like the queens that they are! The ladies are not crammed in cages or live in factory warehouses. Instead, they roam freely while foraging on grasses, seeds, plants, bugs, and worms, and have adventures in the outdoors EVERY DAY. They also perch and lay their eggs in their very own eggmobiles.

 

 

 

Humanely Treated: We are audited and certified by Animal Welfare Approved. AWA is the only certifier to approve pasture-raised operations at the highest standards.

Rotational Method Of Grazing:  The ladies are rotated as often as needed using portable electric fencing to avoid overgrazing and soil erosion. Instead they fertilize the soil, help rid invasive plants, and bring back our native species.

 

Predator Friendly: We utilize livestock guardian dogs to deter encounters with wildlife and provide protection for the ladies.

 

 

 

  • Healthy Feed:  Our ladies have access to corn-free, soy-free, non-gmo feed made with organic ingredients and clean water at all times.
  • Our pastures and hens are FREE of: pesticides, herbicides, chemicals, hormones, antibiotics, and artificial stimulants.

EGG-ceptional Quality:  They look, taste, and feel better! Our yolks are richer in color, the whites are firmer, and the shells are stronger. Plus they break better in the pan!  We’re not just saying this because they’re our eggs. Try them and you’ll know what we mean.
