Not all eggs are created equal.
It's been proven that an egg's nutritional value largely depends on what was fed to the hen that produced it, the hen's environment and how she was treated. In other words, by buying eggs from farmers who choose to humanely treat their ducks, feed them top quality feed, allow them to forage and behave like ducks, you're ensuring that the eggs you eat are more nutritious. Furthermore, you're helping contribute to the overall good health and quality of life for the ducks producing them. Above all, it encourages good stewardship, which is the consumer’s responsibility, as well as the farmer’s.
