Our 65 hens are here in the valley where they are forest grazed, free to roam, vegetarian fed (except for bugs and worms), antibiotic free, happy, healthy, chirpy birds. We only feed our girls all-natural and animal-free feed, organic veggie scraps and organic mushroom stumps care of Hood River Organic. This way, the eggs they produce are as healthy for you as they possibly can be.
