MGM Pastured Free-Range Farm Fresh Eggs

About MGM Chickens and Farm Fresh Eggs

Chickens that live at MGM Paso Finos & Family Orchard LLC are raised the way our ancestors would have cared for them, in pasture! Our hens spend the majority of their day on pasture and are free to scratch for bugs, graze weeds and grasses, preen and lie down in the warmth of the sun with plenty of room to spread their wings.

Because chickens cannot survive on pasture alone, we provide our flock with Purina® Layena® Plus Omega-3 pellets poultry feed. However, pastured chickens will get up to 30 percent of their nutritional needs from insects, grass, clover and other greens. As a result of this kind of diet, their eggs have higher amounts of omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin E, vitamin A, folic acid and carotenoids and half the cholesterol. (see: Mother Earth News magazine, Oct/Nov 2007 issue)
When you open a carton of our eggs you will see a beautiful display of egg shell colors. We raise a variety of chickens, each breed (and individual chicken) has their own shell color. The color of the shell has no connection to the quality of the contents. It goes back to what the chickens eat!
Eggs are gathered, hand-washed, boxed and labeled daily. MGM Farm Fresh eggs are not available commercially but only available at our farm or on select dates at local farmer markets and locations.

Why buy from local farms?

Today, more and more people are taking charge and notice of where their food comes from and how it is raised. People do this for many reasons including protecting the environment, wanting fresh and nutritious food without the added chemicals and preservatives, to support their local economy and more importantly to protect the family owned farm. People today want to know where their food comes from, who is supplying their food, the care being given to the animals producing it, and the safety measures being used to raise their foods.

There are many reasons to support a locally owned farm. Whatever interest leads you to consider local, there are many benefits. Small, family run farms are an important foundation of our community. In addition, local farmers are often able to get food from the farm to your table in 24 hours. The freshness of our eggs enhances the nutritional value of your food as well as flavor. Pasture-Raised and omega-3 eggs contain a wealth of nutrients, vitamins and minerals! Thank you for supporting your local farmer and MGM Paso Finos & Family Orchard!
