Caged vs. free-range vs. pastured poultry… Caged and free-range chickens do not have adequate access to grass. Chickens take a percentage of their diet from pasture. They are efficient omnivores requiring a varied diet. Studies show pastured eggs contained one-third less cholesterol and one-quarter less saturated fat, in addition to higher levels of vitamin A, beta-carotene, vitamin E and omega-3 fatty acids. Pastured poultry is also better for the environment, boosting the soil and helping to control pests. Pastured chickens are allowed to roam the pasture, eating a diet of grass, weed seeds, insects and worms, in addition to supplemental grain mixtures, the diet for which poultry were created.
*FARM EGGS from Spring Valley Farms, a local farm which uses a pasture based model and supplements with Non-GMO grains. Their hens live in mobile hen houses through the grass season, moving steadily across the fields. The eggs have a beautiful orange color and firm upright yolks, a sign of a quality egg. Spring Valley Farm eggs are $4.50 doz.
*PASTURED CHICKENS from local Tyner Pond Farm. They raise chickens by the Joel Salatin method, pastured with Chicken-mobiles that move around the fields behind their Grass Fed beef cattle. Their chickens eat a diet of grass, weed seeds, insects and worms. Locally located in Greenfield, IN, their animals are raised without the use of chemical nitrates and nitrites, pharmaceuticals, chemicals, antibiotics, or hormones. Processed USDA inspected.

**We also carry Elderberries when in season from Oak Ridge Farm, a local organic farm. The benefits of black elderberry extract have been known for thousands of years. The widespread use of this natural remedy has led to a number of studies into its health benefits. Their medicinal use was documented as far back as the fifth century when it was used as an all-round health tonic and an effective remedy against colds and flu. Recent studies show that patients given black elderberry extract recovered very quickly, typically within two or three days, compared to almost a week for those not taking the remedy. The remedy can be used to bring on sweats, so fevers are quickly flushed out of the system. The high vitamin content and flavonoids make it a natural antioxidant, thus boosting the body’s immune system. Other components include a natural anti-inflammatory, which can have a positive effect on aches and pains.
