Egg Facts!

Here are some facts about fresh farm eggs put out by "Mother Earth". We love the taste of our "Good Life" farm eggs. Our customers love our beef, chicken, and eggs. It is a great feeling to think you have a little control in what your family is fed. No antibiotics, steroids, hormones...all good things. I often email these egg facts to my customers, or slip them into our egg cartons. I thought I would share them with you.

*For every one egg you eat from a pastured hen, you would also have to eat three factory eggs to get the same amount of vitamin E and five for as much vitamin D. All the while, each additional conventional egg you eat will be giving you one third more cholesterol.

To get the amount of beta-carotene present in one pastured egg, for instance, you would have to eat seven from a factory farm*, according to the 2007 Mother Earth News egg testing project.
