🍳 Breakfast anyone? These are my favorite eggs!

The best eggs you can get the need  to have 2 requirements:

1. They need to display the USDA Certified Organic seal,  which means the chickens didn't eat any GMO corn or other pesticide food.

2. They need to be Certified Pasture-Raised. Look for the HFAC Humane Farm Animal Care seal!

Like these ones, they are not only USDA organic but also Pasture-Raised and Humane Farm Animal Care (HFAC) Certified!

There is a difference between pasture-raised and free-range.  

"Cage-free"  eggs have been a major cause of debate in the US. 

In the United States, free-range regulations do not necessarily require that hens spend substantial time outdoors, only that the hens "have access to the outdoors"

HFAC requirements for:

 "free-range" is that birds need to be at least 6 hours per day outdoors.

"pastured-raised" birds must be outdoors year-round.

According to the HFAC, this company is on the pastured-raised program.

Vitamin D in eggs has been observed to increase up to 4 times in hens that have exposure to sunlight, compared to hens that are kept away from sunlight.
