Celebrate Egg Month with Nellie’s Certified Humane Free Range Eggs!
Disclosure: I received samples for my review. This is a sponsored post. All opinions are mine alone.
I don’t know about your house, but here we go through almost two dozen eggs a week for five people. I eat eggs and spinach every single morning, I cook and bake with eggs, and my kids love egg and cheese sandwiches. I always buy eggs as part of my weekly shopping trip.
We are *picky* about our eggs though. I want to be sure I am buying the best eggs for my family. With so much information out there about what is right or wrong to eat or buy, it can be overwhelming and the prices are all over the place depending on what you chose.
I like to keep it as simple as possible – I want fresh eggs, from happy chickens, that were fed a delicious diet.
If you’re not already familiar, Nellie’s is committed to providing better lives for hens, which means better eggs for you and your family! Coming from the first Certified Humane® farm in the country, Nellie’s girls (aka hens) are never caged and have as much, or as little, access to outside as they want. Nellie’s also supports a network of small family farms, unlike competitors with massive factory-farm set ups.
So what is free range?
- Hens have easy access to the outdoors with real grass to peck, play and dust bathe.
- The have access to antibiotic free feed and fresh water 24/7.
- And much more.
What is Certified Humane®?
- No cages, anywhere.
- Ample space and shelter, in clean, well ventilated barns.
- Gentle handling to limit stress.
- Freedom to do what comes naturally, like roosting, scratching, and dust bathing.
- Ready access to the outdoors and grass when the season and safety permit (which is to say, most of the time)
- Nutritious, high-quality feed free of antibiotics or hormones.
- Fresh, pure water whenever they want it.
- So if you want to know for sure that your eggs come from farmers that truly care for their hens, look for the Certified Humane seal on your eggs.
Nellie’s Eggs are delicious – trust me – I’ve had fresh eggs from my Uncle’s chickens and you can truly taste the difference with a fresh egg versus an egg from a factory farm.
I love Nellie’s packaging – each egg is in its own little *nest* allowing me to quickly check for any damage at the market without going through container after container. It also keeps the eggs doubly safe for travel. I can even recycle the plastic carton unlike those old fashioned Styrofoam ones. Check here to see if a store near you carries Nellie’s.
For me, these are the details that put my mind at ease when shopping for fresh eggs for my family. It really is the next best thing to me raising my own chickens – trust me – I’ve totally thought about it – maybe some day. 😉
