Introducing Yorkshire Valley Farms pasture-raised organic eggs

SPECIAL SEAONAL OFFERING

Pasture season is here, and we’re pleased to offer our pasture-raised eggs for the 2018 season. In addition to following organic practices, our pasture egg growers are able to offer the hens an enhanced pasture environment, with more space for the hens to roam outdoors to forage and enhance their diet with grasses, insects, and other natural matter.

In the barn the birds can move about freely, with nests and perches to lay their eggs. They enjoy a diet of pesticide- and herbicide-free grains, with no animal by-products added. 

How we manage our pasture-raised organic egg program

Unlike organic, "pasture-raised" is not a defined term with set practices that must be followed. Yorkshire Valley Farms has taken the lead to define our pasture program, and establish standards that all of our pasture growers must meet.

  • Daily pasture access during pasture season, weather permitting
  • Enlarged pasture area, with minimum 1.85m2 (20ft2) per hen
  • Pasture rotation throughout season to encourage foraging
  • Herbicide-and pesticide-free pastures
  • Organic grain feed
  • No animal by-products added
  • Cage-free barn with nests and perches for laying
  • Small flocks raised on family-run farms in Ontario

Our pasture program is a special seasonal offering, available in limited quantities late spring to early fall
(weather permitting).

Our commitment to organic

When our founding farmers started farming in Ontario many years ago, they chose to grow organically because they knew it would provide the best products for their families and friends.
