AN ORGANIC PASTURE RAISED EGG HAS 1/3 LESS CHOLESTEROL
The cholesterol benefits of organic eggs truly are greater than their non-organic cousins. Research reveals that an egg from a pastured and organically fed hen has 1/3 less cholesterol than an egg from a commercially raised hen! In addition to this we know that the cholesterol present in eggs effects our cholesterol levels less than what we once thought it did.

It takes three times the land to produce half the amount of eggs.
Eggs packed by Dutch Country Organics come from happy, robust hens that are pasture raised. Our hens are raised on 100% organic feed and even though it takes three times the land to produce half the amount of eggs, they have access to the outdoors where they can eat insects, scratch in the dirt, flap their wings, and breathe fresh air.
