Organic Matters

Organic is a direct reference to the way agricultural products are grown and processed. In the U.S., organic livestock raised for eggs must have access to the outdoors and be given organic feed. They cannot consume antibiotics, growth hormones, or any animal by-products.

What Organic Means for Your Health

Consume Less Preservatives

Organic food doesn’t contain preservatives to make it last longer on the shelves. These foods are often produced on small, family-run farms, like ours, and delivered locally for fresh results.


Better for the Environment

Organic farming helps reduce pollution, conserve water, reduce soil erosion, and uses less energy. Farming with less pesticides is also better for those that live around the community.


Stay Away from Antibiotics

We don’t give our chickens antibiotics, so that means no antibiotic-resistant strains of bacteria in your body. They also don’t receive growth hormones or animal byproducts.


Eat GMO-Free

Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) foods have been altered to be resistant to pesticides. We feed our chickens all organic feed, so your eggs don’t contain any chemicals.

Our Commitment To You

As a CCOF (California Certified Organic Farmers) certified organic provider, we strive to go beyond standard to ensure that you enjoy the tastiest organic eggs possible.


All of our hens are fed the finest organic, non-GMO grains and seeds from certified pesticide-free fields. We also own and operate Southern California’s only certified organic feed mill for poultry for complete quality control.


Cage Free Means Happier Chickens

We know the impact an environment has on a chicken’s life and believe that happy hens are productive hens. Given the pleasant weather conditions in California, our chickens have the opportunity to live active lives thanks to plenty of time outdoors with fresh air and sunlight. All of our birds have access to soil and vegetation where they can dust bathe, scratch, and dig for insects.


Our chickens lay their eggs inside within the floor operations where they can roam around the building, room and, open area, usually inside a barn or poultry house. They always have unlimited access to fresh food and water. Sometimes, they choose to forage for food outdoors.


It’s simple. They get to do what chickens are supposed to do.

Studies have found that battery hens have a 25X higher chance of contracting Salmonella than cage-free hens.


California Free Range vs. The Other Guys

Cage free farming is the standard in the humane treatment of chickens. As a result, we don’t believe that any other technique is acceptable. Other egg providers attempt to produce eggs on a mass scale, keeping their chickens in large buildings without direct access to the outdoors.


Chickens in these environments are stuffed into a cage with several other chickens, each with a space roughly the size of a sheet of notebook paper. There’s little room to stretch their wings or turn around. They’re uncomfortable and don’t get the exercise they need, unlike those that live outside the cage. Oftentimes they are too unhealthy to even stand up.


Research has shown that a comfortable low-stress environment throughout all stages of a chicken’s development makes for a happier and healthier life. We believe that free range environments are the best and produce the highest quality eggs.
