PASTURE RAISED EGGS ARE HEALTHIER!! Eggs from pasture-raised hens contain higher levels of key nutrients, according to a new study published in the Food Chemistry journal. Reasearches at Reading University in the UK analyzed 270 eggs on sale in various UK supermarkets and found eggs yolks from birds that had continuous access to pasture contained up to 30 percent more vitamin D than those from birds kept in sheds or cages. The pasture-raised eggs also had elevated levels of a form of vitamin D called 25-hydroxy D3, and higher levels of calicfediol, which has been shown to increase the body's ability to absorb calcium. Vitamin D is essential for health and can help prevent certain cancers, heart disease and diabetes. "Both vitamin D3 and 25-hydroxy D3 were significanly different according to production system," say the researchers.

Lee-Lynns Farm and Ranch, Barry, TX

Posted by Animal Welfare Approved on August 26, 2015.

Rick Tantlinger and Terry Lundberg raised Certified AWA laying hens on pasture at Lee-Lynns Farm and Ranch in Barry, Texas. "Truly sustainable livestock farming requires the use of a pasture-based system," explains Rick. "In addition to dramatically improving the welfare of farm animals, pasturing also helps reduce environmental damage, and yields meat, eggs, and dairy products that are tastier and more nutritious than foods produced on factory farms." Research shows that pasture-based management is not only better for animal welfare, but results in tasty and nutritious eggs with more beta carotene and higher levels of beneficial conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) and omega-3 fatty acids when compared to conventional eggs.

Certified AWA laying hens at Lee-Lynns Farm and Ranch roam freely in a natural environment, where they can perform natural behaviors like running, foraging, pecking, dust bathing and scratching for insects and seeds. "Industrial farms frequently supplement animal feed with a range of byproducts to bolster the quality and protein content of the feed," Rick explains. "Our laying hens enjoy days full a sunshine and a diet free of the unnatural additives that are routinely administered on factory farms."

Certified AWA pasture-raised eggs from Lee-Lynns Farm and Ranch are available direct from the farm. For more information, visit www.Lee-Lynns.com, or follow Lee-Lynns Farm and Ranch on Facebook .

Today is a very exciting day for Lee-Lynns Farm and Ranch! We have just received official notification that we have been approved as an Animal Welfare Approved Farm! This is a quote from the AWA "Animal Welfare Approved (AWA) is a food label for meat and dairy products that come from farm animals raised to the highest animal welfare and environmental standards. The program was founded in 2006 as a market-based solution to the growing consumer demand for meat, eggs and dairy products from animals treated with high welfare and managed with the environment in mind. As a program accredited to ISO guideline 17065, you can trust in the AWA label while making food choices when you can’t visit the farm yourself."
