Buying eggs at the grocery store isn’t always as easy as it used to be. That’s partly because there are so many kinds of eggs to choose from these days. From cage-free to organic, traditional to pasture-raised and more, you have plenty of options when it comes to eggs.

If “pasture-raised” stuck out in the list of egg types mentioned above, you may be asking yourself, “What does pasture-raised mean?” It’s simple—what makes eggs pasture-raised is the fact that hens have access to outdoors, sun light on regular basis.
Even though modern chickens have evolved from their ancestral cousins over the years, hens are still near-insatiable omnivores. If they lived in the wild, chickens would still eat almost any food they had access to. When chickens are raised on pasture, their experience closely mimics how they’d live in the wild–and their diet reflects it.
In addition to being fed a diet of Sauder’s Gold feed, rich in lutein, Omega-3 and vitamin D; pasture-raised hens also enjoy the outdoors as they feed on natural grass, seeds and insects. In general, pasture-raised eggs are laid by chickens that enjoy an outdoor lifestyle that’s cleaner and less stressful than alternative environments. These hens also enjoy plenty of fresh air and exposure to the sun.
We wanted to go a step further in providing our customers with a superior egg. At Sauder’s Eggs, as part of our renewed commitment to sustainability and lowering our impact on the Earth, we package our pasture-raised Gold Eggs in the GreeNest carton.
