Free–Run?


All the laying hens at Nature’s Farm™ are free–run which means they are able to move freely within the poultry barns – from the barn floor, to roosting areas and perches. Unlike free–range hens, free–run hens do not eat outdoor vegetation, allowing us to control the diet and ensure only healthy feed is consumed. We give our hens the freedom to move about and lay their eggs in nests, thereby imitating a natural environment and maximizing their well being.

 

Why is Omega–3 Healthy?
Omega–3 fatty acids are essential fatty acids that are in short–supply in the typical North American diet. Omega–3s are important for healthy brain function, as well as for normal growth and development. Omega–3s have been linked to heart health, and studies of other Omega–3 health benefits are ongoing. Salmon, tuna, halibut, fish oil supplements, and some nut and seed (like flax and canola) oils, are good sources of Omega–3 fatty acids.

 

What are Organic Products?
The term “organic” means grown or raised without chemicals. Organic certification, including verification of all supplier sources, is provided by International Certification Services, Inc., an internationally recognized certifier of organic food systems and products.

 

Nutrition
Smart Eggs™ are a healthy food choice and an important source of protein, vitamins and minerals. Eggs are one of nature’s most nutrient dense foods, and Canada’s Food Guide identifies a serving of two eggs as part of a healthy eating pattern.

The protein in Nature’s Farm™ Smart Eggs™ is of the highest quality found in food and contains all nine amino acids essential to our health. Dietary protein quality is measured in terms of biological value; i.e., the rate of efficiency with which protein is used for growth and regeneration of our muscles, our skin and other body tissues, as well as for production of antibodies, hormones and enzymes essential to our health. The biological value of egg protein ranks the highest – even higher than it is for milk, salmon, meat or beans. Scientists use eggs as the standard for measuring the protein quality of other foods.
