Omega­3 Eggs come from hens that live in special houses. There is room for enrichments like scratch areas, perches and a nest box.

These hens are also fed a specially formulated nutritious diet rich in Omega­3 sourced mostly from flax seeds. The eggs can be brown or white depending on which type of hen lays them. A standard egg has approximately 37 mg of omega 3’s in a large egg and Omega 3 enriched eggs can range from 100 to over 300 mg per egg like our Gemperle Farms omega 3 eggs (That have over 300 mg of omega 3’s).

Also note that any California label claims about additional nutritional levels must have lab tests to support these claims. These must be available for inspection by State Egg Inspectors. So you can be sure the eggs you buy are as nutritious as the label claims.

Cage ­Free eggs come from hens that and are free to roam. Our Hens are raised in barns or hen aviaries and the flock is able to roam around freely.

These living environments include:

● Perches, nesting areas

● Litter access for dust bathing

● Lots of room for socializing with the many hens in the flock and natural hen behavior

● They have easy access to fresh water and healthy grains for optimal health and healthy nutritious eggs

Organic eggs are raised similar to cage free hens with plenty of room to roam and participate in natural chicken behavior such as dust bathing and perching.

Hens are fed organically certified vegetarian feed. The feed ingredients are sourced from many certified organic family farms.

These beautiful ladies are a friendly variety of brown Rhode Island Red hens; they are larger than a traditional white hen and require more feed to produce your eggs. That’s one reason why organic eggs are a bit more expensive

An independent auditor, Quality Assurance International, certifies that our operations at Gemperle Family Farms meet the rigid requirements of the California Department of Food and Agriculture, as well as the federal standards of the USDA National Organic Program.
