Why Soy Free Eggs?
Frequently Asked Questions
About Adam's Heirlooms Soy Free Eggs?
What Makes Our Soy Free Eggs so Delicious?
Our secret to making rich, flavorful eggs is simple: lots of space to roam, lots of love, soy-free nutrition, and a few bugs here and there. In our pastures where our girls wander, and everywhere else on our farm too, we never spray the land with harmful pesticides or herbicides. We make our hens’ lives better, and their eggs make your cakes, custards, and everything in between taste better.
What do Adam's Heirlooms Heritage Breed Hens Eat?
Since our girls are galivanting around the pasture they can eat what they like pasture grassed & plants, bugs, vegetables that don't make the cut for market, and other natural fare. We’ve formulated supplemental feed to support our hens. This custom feed was created to ensure they receive enough protein and calcium to adequately support their bodies through egg production. Our custom feed consists of peas, oats, wheat, corn, alfalfa, flax seed, oyster shell, and trace minerals. No soy in our girls diet.
Are there any nutritional differences between pasture raised & non-pastured raised eggs?
Adam's Heirlooms pasture raised hens have a naturally healthy diet, and this translates into golden yolks, thicker whites, a fresh rich taste and more nutritionally dense egg compared to non-pastured eggs. Studies show that pasture raised eggs have lower cholesterol and fat, more Vitamins A, D, and E, and higher levels of omega-3 fatty acids and carotene.
Do your eggs contain hormones or antibiotics?
No. Adam's Heirlooms pasture raised hens, feed, and eggs are hormone- and antibiotic-free. We use oregano and thyme essential oils in the water to prevent diseases.
