It starts with our feed
Our commitment to organic goes well beyond standard. We strive to provide you with the highest quality eggs. That’s why we control every step of the process. It all starts with our feed.
For more than six decades, we’ve been producing high quality eggs and that’s how we know that the difference is in the feed. As they say, “you are what you eat,” and the same rules apply to our chickens.
Chino Valley Ranchers owns and operates
Southern California’s only certified organic feed mill for poultry
to ensure the highest quality and purity.
We develop our feed specifically to help keep our chickens stay healthy, active and content.
Organic feed has a positive impact on the quality and nutritional value of our eggs.
Our chickens don’t consume hormones, antibiotics, or animal by-products, which means you don’t either!
As a leading producer of organic eggs, we take great pride in providing you with a wide variety of options including omega-3, vegetarian, and soy free. We also ensure that our eggs have the highest nutritional values and the best taste. This is all possible thanks to our precision feed formulation. We begin with the finest grains, using only top grade corn, soybean, alfalfa, flax seed, and other select seeds, plus limestone for essential minerals.
The best way to control quality of our eggs is to give our chickens the healthiest life possible. Aside from providing cage free environments, we mill our own feed onsite. As a result, we have healthy chickens that produce eggs with the high nutritional value for our customers.
We are certified organic by CCOF (California Certified Organic Farmers). All areas of production, from the feed mill to the processing plant, are inspected to ensure our compliance with the organic standards.
What we put into our feed changes the composition of our eggs. Chickens that eat a soy-free diet can produce soy-free eggs. We can also produce higher omega-3 fatty acids in our produce by changing up the custom feed. The possibilities are virtually limitless!
We have an Avian Nutritionist on staff to formulate grain combinations into the most nutritious diet for our chickens, and to optimize precision and quality for the variety of specialty eggs we produce. This important process is based on years of company research evaluating how different feed formulations affect the nutritional properties of eggs.
Each egg contains 225 mg of Omega-3, also known as alpha-linoleic acid (ALA), which has a positive effect on cardiovascular health.
Our Organic Omega-3 eggs come from hens raised in free roaming environments and fed a special soy-free diet that contains flax seeds.
Our Veg-A-Fed eggs come from hens raised in free roaming environments and fed a pure vegetarian diet consisting of premium grains, seeds, and meal.
