What is the difference between cage-free and pasture-raised?
Labels and marketing schemes can be very tricky. Many consumers are looking to buy farm fresh eggs, that are humanely raised. When consumers see cage-free, it is thought that the chickens are free to roam. However, this is not the case. Cage-free is a literal term. All it means is they are not in a cage. The chickens could have less than a square foot between themselves and another chicken, raised inside a barn, never see sunlight, and all the while be considered “cage-free.” It’s a marketing strategy. Pasture-raised means that the chickens are grazing outside on the pastures. However, still look at your labels and see how much square footage each chicken is getting. Also, some farms have broiler chickens all year round and in the winter, bring them inside a barn. They will still claim pasture-raised on the label. We welcome our consumers to visit our farm and to watch all of our videos. We are completely transparent on how we raise our chickens and how much square footage they will get!
