PASTURE RAISED” MEAN?
Hens are fed genetically modified grains, from crops treated with chemical pesticides.
No cages, but crowded barns with thousands of birds fighting for space —not exactly “free.”
Hens are fed non-GMO grains, however, pasture and crops may be treated with chemical pesticides and hens may receive antibiotics.
With as little as 2 sq. ft. per hen, the “range” can be about half the size of your coffee table. That's not a lot—even for an 18" tall hen.
The hens and their land and feed are free from chemical pesticides, GMOs and antibiotics—which means you are too.
At least 108 sq. ft. per hen, (an acre of land for every 400 hens), on rotated pastures. That's what we call freedom.
