Farmer Brown’s Pastured Eggs are laid by happy hens who enjoy a free roaming existence on the pastures of Gillinghall in the Central West of NSW.
The term pastured means the hens are free to roam foraging on the pasture with unlimited access to trees, insects and sunlight. The management of the hens like all other enterprises on Gillinghall is driven by a set of principles which focus on animal welfare, land stewardship, product quality and being able to demonstrate these key principles. That’s why choosing Farmer Brown’s Pastured Eggs “Just Feels Right”.
Access to fresh pasture and insects supplemented by home grown and home milled grains, results in a healthy, balanced and diverse diet for our hens. It’s proven that pastured eggs have a higher nutritional value, A study done by the Renewable Agriculture and Food Systems journal, tested the nutritional value of pastured eggs versus caged eggs.
Pastured eggs were found to be more nutritious than caged eggs, presenting twice as much Vitamin E, 38% more Vitamin A, twice as much long-chain Omega-3 fats, 2.5 times total Omega 3 fatty acids and importantly less than half the ratio of Omega-6 to Omega-3, you can read more here.
Freshness is also critical to good egg quality, so our regular deliveries fresh from the farm ensure the highest quality egg is delivered every time.
