Real Pasture fed free range eggs rich in Omega 3 and nutritionally superior
A True Taste sensation
A day at Organigrow
Making Organigrow eggs the best on the market invovles a lot of never ending hard work: before sun rise, the morning rounds allow to check that all the hens are well, to clean the drinkers and look out for any sick chickens. Indeed, chickens sometimes catch things similar to our colds, so when that happens, they are seperated from the others and nursed.
In their large enclosures, the hens are free to roam between the purching houses (where they sleep and nap), the nesting houses and the feeding lines where they can feed freely, during the day, on choice grain, dosed and mixed by Simon, the owner and manager of the farm.
Later in the moring, around 10 am, the hens are let out to graise all day on the vast pasturges sheltered by the wide variety of fruit and nut trees Simon planted 20 years ago on the farm.
Work goes on for everyone, as while a part of the small team collects the eggs in the nesting houses, others pick up those layed in nests all over the farm. Another part of the team work in the packing shed where only the weighing and cleaning are automated. The candeling and packing are handled by the teams expert eyes and hands.
In the evening, the feeders shut and, as the sun sets, the hens return from the pastures to the purching houses were they settle down. A second set of rounds starts to make sure all is well and close the chickens in for the night, thus protecting them from foxes and other predators.
In summer, fighting the heat adds extra work to make sure the chickens manage to have enough shade and fresh water. The heavy rains in the region also complicate our work by making puddles in the pastures. Hens don't really like being very wet.
Once a week, Simon loads his truck and delivers his eggs. So your local store has the freshest eggs possible.
All this hard work is worth it because only real organic free range can give our eggs that very good special taste and make the difference on your health.
