Settlers Solar Eggs
Our large flock of hens enjoys life on pasture in the summer and stays cozy in a hoophouse in the winter. Why do we call them solar eggs? For many reasons: all the electricity for the farm is generated by our six solar trackers, the hens thrive on pasture where they forage the plants that are soaking up the sun's energy, and the hens' egg yolks are brighter than the sun - a rich orange color thanks to all the beta carotene in the green plants that the hens eat while on pasture. In addition to their pasture foraging our hens eat NON-GMO grain. The best way to eat Settlers Solar Eggs - Sunny side up!
