Treat yourself to one dozen local, pasture roaming hen eggs that Seth raises using organic methods. Each egg is cleaned, sanitized, rinsed, inspected, and candled (shine a light into) to ensure top quality and they come in varying sizes with blue, green, brown, and white shells.
I have a mixed flock of 35 pet hens that roam freely without fences on the 5 acre organic farm. They keep me company as I work scratching for greens and bugs and relish in dust-bathing without a care in the world (and they are my best organic pest control secret agents). They tuck themselves in their solar powered coop at night and are protected by an electric fence.
I work hard to enjoy an organic lifestyle at Valhalla Spa Organics and all of our animals and plants enjoy one too. Hen list: Blue Wheaten Ameraucana, Olive Egger, Jersey Giant, Delaware, Buff Orpington, Wyandotte, and Cream Legbar.
These eggs are considered designer eggs because they likely have an enhanced nutritional profile due to the following (Jacob 2000):
- their wild, naturally foraged diet as “free wandering farm hens” likely adds organic nutrient minerals in their egg yolk (especially selenium, iodine and chromium);
- supplemented organic feed containing olive oil which has been shown to increase the amount of omega-3 fatty acids;
- supplemented organic scratch grain corn adds carotenoid pigments in the yolk that help prevent macular degeneration from age related loss of eyesight (lutein and zeaxanthin).
