Egg Safety - Egg Grading:
 
Why do we grade eggs?

An Organic Egg Really Does Do Your Body Good.  If you've been staying away from eggs because you're afraid of raising your blood cholesterol level, I encourage you to review my article on what most doctors won't tell you about cholesterol. The truth is that organic eggs are abundant in the following health-promoting nutrient.
We do not use chemicals, genetically modified organisms,
or artificial fertilizers for raising 
our hens.

6 Reasons Why Eggs Are The Healthiest Food on The Planet, by By Kris Gunnars, BSc     
Eggs are so nutritious that they're often referred to as "nature's multivitamin."One large egg contains (1):
Vitamin B12 (Cobalamin): 9% of the RDA.
Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin): 15% of the RDA.
Vitamin A: 6% of the RDA.
Vitamin B5 (Pantothenic Acid): 7% of the RDA.
Selenium: 22% of the RDA.
Eggs also contain small amounts of almost every vitamin and mineral required by the human body... including calcium, iron, potassium, zinc, manganese, Vitamin E, Folate and many more.
They also have unique antioxidants and powerful brain nutrients that many people are deficient in.
Here are 6 reasons why eggs are among the healthiest foods on the planet.


What do you know about eggs?
LillyChickenCartoon.JPG
Hi, I'm Lilly, speaking on behalf for my fellow laying hens at Rieger Farms.
 
I have a little quiz for you.
 
First I would  like to say, I lay eggs to be hatched, and not for you to eat.:-)  
So don't complain if my eggs are not all in the same shape, size or color.
I room around on 54 acres. That why my eggs are called  Free Range Eggs.
 
 
Let's check your EGG knowledge.
# 1 Do I need a rooster to produce eggs ? 
# 2 How many hours do I need to produce ONE egg?
# 3 How many eggs a chicken lays per day?   
# 4 Why do I lay brown eggs. 
Answer:
A #1.....NO ( I don't need a damn roster to lay eggs. :-)
A #2.....26 hours
A #3.....ONE a day (need 26 hours to produce ONE egg.
A #4..... I'm a brown leghorn

 A new way of farming: Permaculture

Permaculture intro: WHAT IS PERMACULTUREPermaculture integrates land, resources, people and the environment through mutually beneficial synergies - imitating the no waste, closed loop systems seen in diverse natural systems. Permaculture studies and applies holistic solutions that are applicable in rural and urban contexts at any scale. It is a multidisciplinary toolbox including agriculture, water harvesting and hydrology, energy, natural building, forestry, waste management, animal systems, aquaculture, appropriate technology, economics and community development....Read more click here

Permaculture in Canada
Miracle Farms, a 5-acre commercial permaculture orchard in Southern Quebec, Canada
Twenty years ago, Stefan Sobkowiak bought a commercial apple orchard with the intention of converting it to an organic orchard. He did just that, but eventually understood the limitations of the organic model originating from monoculture. He then decided to tear out most of the trees and replant in a way that would maximize biodiversity and yield while minimizing the amount of maintenance required. Inspired by permaculture principles, the orchard now counts over 100 cultivars of apples, plus several types of plums, pears, cherries, and countless other fruits and vegetables.

What is a Regenerative Society? 
A Regenerative Society meets the needs of humans and all life systems through the practices and principles found in Permaculture Low Impact Sustainable Development.EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
The United Nations issued a report that stated  "Only Small Farmers Can Feed the World" Governments must shift subsidies and research funding from agro-industrial monoculture to small farmers using ‘agroecology [permaculture]' methods. According to the UN's Special Report on the Right to Food modern industrial agricultural methods can no longer feed the world, due to the impacts of overlapping environmental and ecological crises linked to land, water and resource availability. A UN official said that new scientific research increasingly shows how ‘agroecology'  offers far more environmentally sustainable methods that can still meet the rapidly growing demand for food.
