Rieger Farms Free Run Eggs
Eggs  produced by hens in open, cage-free environments roaming freely in an open concept barn. They enjoy all the advantages of Free Range hens with the exception of access to outdoors. They are able to socialize and move about the barn without restriction, and they have a varied selection of nesting areas to choose from.

They eat high quality feed, however the feed is Not certified. Free range denotes a method of farming husbandry where hens,  can roam freely outdoors, rather than being confined in an enclosure for 24 hours each day. Free Range hens will be outdoors most days, as our climate allows.

EggGradingOnRiegerFarms.jpg
 
Grade requirements are set for eggs to protect the consuming public from undue risk. In grading eggs, the factors of interior quality, weight, cleanliness and shell construction are considered. These factors are related to safety, wholesomeness and quality. Eggs are graded in a registered egg station to ensure they are handled and packed in a sanitary environment.
Regulations in place to protect consumers require that eggs from federally registered egg grading stations that are graded as Canada A (consumer grade eggs) must be clean and free of leaks, cracks or other defects that could present food safety problems.
 
 
 

EggBestBeforeDate.jpg
A farm-fresh egg will stay together in 'a nice, little package' when someone tries to fry or poach it. An egg past its best before date is more likely to spread or have the yolk break.An unopened, properly stored product's best before date tells a consumer how long that food will keep its flavour and nutritional value. It doesn't have anything to do with a food's safety, says Topp.

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 (C
obalamin): 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?
LillyChickenatRiegerFarms.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

Color of egg yolk
Where Egg Yolk Color Comes From?
"Turns out that egg yolk color is really just an indicator of the hen's diet! If they eat more yellow-orange carotenoids, or natural pigments, it affects and changes the yolk's color.
As for the nutritional value of the yolks, darker, more colorful yolks have the same amount of protein and fat than lighter yolks.

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

"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.

Agriculture needs a new direction: Permaculture .....
