Cozi Farm||Pastured Eggs on Cozi Farms|
Apr 24, 2012 at 10:10 am |
Cozi Farms is a diversified, thriving polyculture where animals are treated with reverence and grace, earthworms are cherished, and all critters eat a species-appropriate diet.
Our pastured eggs are from chickens fed a locally milled and organic ration, and our hens are moved to fresh pasture daily where they eat a full complement of bugs and fresh forages.
Our poultry rations contain a diversity of proteins (including flax and field peas) in order to improve the taste and nutritional profile of our products and reduce our reliance on soy. The soy in our rations are different from conventional feedstuffs in that it's derived from whole, roasted organic soybeans instead of soybean meal, an industrial waste product (containing hexane) customarily fed to livestock. There are no GMOs in our feed, and we use a natural source of amino acids instead of a GMO-derived version, which is allowed in even commercial certified organic feeds. This is the cleanest, healthiest feed available, and it results in a far superior egg.
The hens follow our dairy cows and sheep in a rotation that takes into account the need of the grass to regenerate in order to provide the best nutrition for all the animals and to allow the soil to capture the most carbon from the atmosphere. The key to the health of our birds and the health of our forages is constant movement. We move the eggmobile every single day to a whole new area of fresh grass, and the hens don't return to the same spot for months. Every morning the next boxes are fluffed with fresh straw, meaning our eggs are virtually spotless when they are collected every afternoon. The hens have two livestock guardian dogs to protect them from predators.
We think these are the best eggs around, maybe anywhere, and we'd love to hear what you think. Please share your feed back at firstname.lastname@example.org
