Our Pastured (Grass Fed) Eggs
Pastured eggs, sold at Nutri Spring Farms Ltd., are the highest standard for eggs. Pastured chickens and other poultry are raised on grass, rich in chlorophyll. They'll also eat bugs and grubs. This diet is what produces the distinctive orange yolks and better flavour. Chickens may be kept in moveable pens, which means that they have a new patch of grass every day. Or they may be roaming free in enclosures, as can be seen at Morden's Heritage Farm. Chickens raised this way do not need to be debeaked.

Our laying ducks are imported from Gonzalez, Mexico. The Khaki Campbell was developed in England during the early 1900's by Adele Campbell. They are originally a cross from the prolific egg laying Indian Runner, and the sumptuous Rouen. Unlike other ducks, Khakis are egg layers year round. A variation in shell colour is a natural occurrence. Whether they are pink, cream, green or turquoise, the tint has no effect on the quality of freshness of the egg.

The chickens that lay these eggs are fed a feed that is certified free of chemical fertilizers, fungicides, herbicides, pesticides GMO's and animal by-products. Also no antibiotics or synthetic chemicals are administered to the hen. This is very important however eggs marked organic may still be cage-raised or raised by some other method. Only pastured chickens get the grass, sun and fresh air so important to the quality of their eggs, as well as enough insects to eat.
Cage-labelled or non-labelled eggs
How sad that 95% of laying hens are in this category. These chickens live their whole lives in cramped quarters, unable to flap their wings, turn around or forage for food. They must be debeaked. These eggs are never as tasty as pastured eggs.
Chickens and other poultry whose eggs are sold at Nutri Spring Farms Ltd. have no antibiotics in the feed. This is important as antibiotic resistance is reaching epic proportions.
This is not a concern for the consumer as all eggs and poultry sold in Canada have been hormone-free since the 1960's.
Omega3 fats have been shown to prevent type2 Diabetes. Omega-3 eggs are produced by hens fed a diet containing flaxseed. When the hens digest the flax, some of the ALA gets broken down into DHA and both fatty acids transfer to the yolk. One omega-3 egg typically contains 340 milligrams of ALA and 75 to 100 milligrams of DHA.
If oily fish is a regular part of your diet or you take a fish-oil supplement, eating an omega-3 egg now and again won’t do much to boost your DHA intake. If ground flax (2 tablespoons = 2,400 mg ALA), chia seeds (2 tbsp whole seeds = 3,600 mg) or walnuts (seven halves = 1,280 mg) are a daily staple, you’re covered for ALA.
Again, always check how the chickens are raised before purchasing eggs.
