New egg stamp to highlight “Pastured Eggs”

We feel passionate about our eggs and think they are exquisite to taste. So much so we have had a new egg stamp made which highlights that our eggs are “Pastured”. Many consumers feel that the term “free range” has been degraded under the new guidelines of 10,000 hens per hectare and we could not agree more. To that end our eggs are stamped using our PIRSA code SA113 as well as the words “PASTURED EGGS” so our customers can be assured that our eggs are uniquely different and dare we say better than so called free range eggs. Once you have tried Adelaide Hills Pastured Eggs you will taste the difference. Fresh, nutrient dense eggs straight from our farm to your plate. Choose the best, choose Adelaide Hills Pastured Eggs, its nutrition by nature.

Free Range the New Barn laid Egg

It appears the consumer lucks out again when they go and buy Free Range eggs after the decision to make 10,000 hens per hectare the new standard for Free Range Eggs. RSPCA on their website have questioned the meaning of ‘meaningful and regular access’.

Consumers will be paying an increased price for something that is effectively a barn or caged egg. Here at Adelaide Hills Pastured Eggs we are submitting a proposal to create a new category of eggs. Pastured eggs should become the new gold standard for premium quality eggs. We feel restricted as legislation makes us use the term “free range” on our cartons and after the recent decision we want nothing but to distance ourselves as far from free rnage as possible as the term has now been “bastardized.”  Consumers need a “meaningful” choice so they can make an informed decision as to the quality of the eggs they are buying. What the new legislation has achieved is brought the term free range eggs down to the level of caged and barn laid quality. Egg producers can use the term free range whether a hen physically goes outside the barn or not.

Moving forward consumers need a choice that distinguishes a premium egg product from the rest. That distinction should be pastured eggs. Our hens are never locked up, they have 24 hours a day access to pasture as soon as they leave the perch. Its because they live on the pasture in a mobile hen house, protected by Tom our livestock guardian dog and they have 100% freedom of movement, 100% access to outdoors and 100% ability to live as chickens should, roaming and foraging on bio diverse pastures everyday. The benefits to the consumer is that our hens are moved onto new regenerated pasture every other day, nutrient rich and bio diverse, with all that goodness ending up in exquisite tasting eggs. Try a pastured egg and you’ll immediately see and taste the difference. Its nutrition by nature.WP_20151224_008.jpgAdelaide Hills Pastured eggs label
