STRAIGHT FROM THE PASTURE...

We can’t get enough of these beautiful Pasture-Raised Araucana eggs straight from the ranch.  Araucana or ‘Easter Eggers’ are beautiful chickens known for their ability to lay colored eggs of shades varying from turquoise to deep olive to shades of brown.  We recently added local pasture-raised Araucana egg ranchers from Santa Barbara county to our farmer-direct partnerships. 

Eggs from pastured hens contain up to 20 times more healthy omega-3 fatty acids than those of their less fortunate cousins, factory hens.  Pastured eggs also have 10 percent less fat, 40 percent more vitamin A, and 34 percent less cholesterol than eggs obtained from factory farms. 

Isn't it great when delicious and nutritious go hand-in-hand?
