What is an Omega-3 Egg?
Our Go-Organic Omega-3 eggs are special, value added eggs that we produce especially for our customers that are looking for supplementing Omega-3 in their diets. Each of our Omega-3 eggs contains 250mg of Omega-3 (with a natural variance of up to 20%). We achieve this high level of Omega-3 by adding Organic Flax seed to our hen’s diets. Flax is naturally high in Omega-3 and enriches these eggs with the essential Omega-3, ALA, and vital Omega-3s, EPA and DHA. These eggs are also enriched with Vitamin E. Research has shown Omega-3 to be essential in human sight, brain, and heart health.
What do you feed your hens?
The health and happiness of our hens is important to us. For that reason our hens will never be fed any hormones, antibiotics, harmful drugs, or animal by-products. Our hens feed is vegetarian. It is a mixture of the finest grains: Corn, Wheat, Barley, and Soy. Our special flock of Omega-3 hens are also fed flax seed. All of our Organic hens are fed 100% Organic feed, milled from the finest Organic grains in our own, onsite, certified Organic feed mill.
What causes blood spots in eggs?
Blood spots are NOT an indication of fertility, nor are they a sign of a baby chick developing in your egg. Blood spots are caused by the rupture of a blood vessel on the yolk surface during formation of the egg. Blood spots are found in less than 1% of all eggs. They are usually detected during the candling process, but can occasional go undetected. If you do find a blood spot in your egg, the egg is still safe for consumption and the blood spot can be removed with a spoon or the tip of a knife.
Where are your eggs produced?
All of our Natural Cage Free and Organic Eggs are produced right here on our own family farm. Because we're locally owned and operated, right here in the Pacific Northwest, our eggs typically make it from hen house to our customers in as little as
3 days! We pride ourselves in providing our customers with the freshest, best tasting eggs possible.
By buying local, you'll also be helping our environment by limiting the fuel used to transport products across the country. Many products (yes, even eggs) will travel over 1500 miles before they reach the grocery store. Buying local means buying fresher!
What is a Cage Free Egg?
Our Sunrise Fresh brand of eggs are produced by 100% cage free hens that are fed 100% vegetarian diet free of any animal by-products. They live in community hen houses where they are free to run, preen, perch and socialize. They lay their eggs in nests and have full access to water and feed at any time they choose.
How long can I keep my eggs?
If our eggs are kept refrigerated properly, they will last at least until the date that we stamp on the end of each carton.
What does the "Grade AA" on your carton mean?
With the exception of Jumbos, all of our eggs are Grade AA. Industry wide, Jumbos are never given a Grade AA. Eggs can be Grade AA, A, or B, with Grade AA being the superior grade. A Grade AA Egg is fresher, higher quality egg, with smaller air cell. To produce Grade AA eggs, our eggs have to make it from hen house to customer in record time! Our AA Grade is just one more way you can tell you're getting the freshest eggs possible when you buy our eggs.
What is the difference between a white egg and a brown egg?
The difference between a brown and white egg is the breed of the hen producing the egg. Simply put: Brown hens lay brown eggs and white hens lay white eggs. Nutritionally, these eggs are the same. Brown eggs are typically more expensive because brown hens are typically larger and consume larger quantities of feed.
