Why did the hen lay such Splendid Eggs?
Because she was free to roam and forage.
Splendid Eggs are pastured free range.
How are pastured free-range eggs different to standard free-range eggs?
Our pastured free-range hens are raised in paddocks.
This means there are NO cages or sheds. Unlike intensive free-range farming systems, our hens live outdoors in big open pastures, roost in mobile nesting trailers and are completely free to peck for seeds, insects, plants and roam as they please 24 hours a day.
Our happy hens have freedom to roam and a more varied diet than supposed ‘free-range’ hens. Splendid hens produce incredibly creamy, nutrient dense eggs that taste delicious and cook beautifully.
A pastured free-range egg is packed full of vitamins and minerals such as Vitamin A, D, E, K2, B-12, folate, riboflavin, zinc, calcium, beta carotene, choline, and tons of omega 3 fatty acids.
