Pasture-Raised Native Chicken
Entirely free-ranged (pastured) native chickens raised in the farm using sustainable farming practices. Raised with no antibiotics or hormones. No pesticides or herbicides in the soil or chicken feed. Our hens and chickens spend real time outside eating grass and grubs and are exposed to sunlight and fresh air.
The chickens and eggs laid tend to be more nutritious because these chickens have exposure to sunlight, which their bodies convert to Vitamin D, and pass it on to their eggs. Eggs from pastured-hens have three to six times more vitamin D than eggs from hens raised in confinement.
DowntoEarth poultry and eggs are native and pasture-raised. The reason why we choose native chicken and eggs is because the native breed cannot be confined. By nature, they cannot be placed inside cages as they are wild animals. They also cannot be kept together in enclosed quarters, as they fight other chickens/hens and have a tendency to fly. These chickens/hens have to be placed outdoors, given full access to vegetable and grubs, and be under sunshine.
