Cider Hollow’s Fresh Free Range Eggs
Happy and healthy chicken produce phenomenal tasting eggs that are healthier too. Once you go local – you’ll never go back! Fresh free range eggs from our Tennessee farm have deep yellow orange yolks and solid whites compared to the watery whites and faded yellow color of store bought eggs. In fact, we think you’ll agree that our eggs are waaay better than store-bought AND actually better than free range. Taste them and see for yourself.
Why Our Farm Eggs Have Better Color, Texture, and Taste
First and foremost our birds are not confined. They free range across our land and are free to feed on insects, wild seeds and fresh pasture forage. This is the natural diet of ducks. When you buy store-bought eggs that promise a 100% vegetarian diet, you are buying eggs from birds that are constantly confined. This is because the only way to guarantee a vegetarian diet because ducks and chickens are omnivores.
Our birds spend countless hours outdoors pursuing grass hoppers and other insects and in turn only consume about 60% of the prepared feed they would if we confined them. It is a combination of this exceptional wild based diet and daily exercise that keeps our farm’s birds at the peak of health and producing top quality eggs.
For prepared feed we feed our birds on a custom blended peanut based feed which is 100% non GMO and free from any soy products as well. If you are looking for this feed in our area we buy ours from our good friends at Hog on the Range. We also feed our birds sprouted black oil sunflower daily which is a super food that provides an incredible nutrition boost and the birds absolutely love it.
– We sell our chicken eggs for $4.50 a dozen. 50 cents of that is a deposit on the egg carton, so if you come back for more and bring the carton back they are 4 dollars, we do this to conserve costs and reduce waste.
– We sell our duck eggs for $7.50 a dozen. 50 cents of that is a deposit on the egg carton, so if you come back for more and bring the carton back they are 7 dollars, we do this to conserve costs and reduce waste. Let us warn you, try duck eggs and you may never buy a chicken egg again. Duck eggs are rich and have amazing yolks, if you like eggs over easy, sunny side up, etc. duck eggs are for you. You will almost never break a yolk because they are firm and hold together so well. Duck eggs are also amazing for baking and for egg wash for breading fried foods. There are times when we actually consider going to 100% ducks on our farm because their eggs are just that good. In fact, for our personal use we now use duck eggs for all our personal egg needs. Yes, they are that good.
