Let us show you real pasture raised eggs

Looking for pasture raised eggs? Search the Get Real Chicken website to find a farmer who can meet your needs. Get Real Chicken is a project of the American Pastured Poultry Producers Association. 

The video clears up the label confusion common in the grocery store aisle by setting a clear expectation of what pasture raised means. Pasture raised hens move to fresh pasture often. They live a majority of their lives on pasture and not in a barn that only gives access to pasture. Movement to fresh pasture ensures that the benefits of the pastured poultry farming model come together into an egg that is documented to be more nutrient dense in important vitamins and fats when compared to non-pasture raised eggs.

Pasture Raised Egg Nutrition Highlights

Compared to non-pastured chicken and eggs, pasture raised chicken and eggs have the following nutritional differences:

  • 286% more Omega 3 fatty acids
  • 13% less saturated fats
  • 73% more Vitamin A
  • 200% more Vitamin E
