Seattle Area Pastured Eggs!
My wife and I started raising chickens a few years ago after learning about where our food came from and how it was produced. We could not find any products that came from chickens actually living on pastured grass, and not overcrowded in barns.
We rent a small 10 acre farm in Woodinville we like to call the Ellis Homestead, as a tribute to the original owners.
The hens living here at Ellis Homestead are pastured on a five acre field, and also have access to five acres of woodlands to forage in. They have access to organic chicken feed which is given to them at night when they are ready to go into the coop. Feeding them at night encourages them to forage during the day so that they don't hang around the coop eating grain all day. We purchase our feed from In Season Farms LTD out of Abbotsford, BC. The hens here are 100% "Free Range" from dawn to dusk. To us this means all of the hens spend the entire day outdoors free to roam wherever they please, except for the time spent to lay their eggs. At night they are safely locked away in a clean, spacious coop. I should mention that this takes no doing on our part, the hens all willingly go into the coop as the sun begins to fall from the sky. We then check on everyone and do a nightly count and latch the door.
Our goal on this farm is to raise healthy happy animals for our friends and family.
