Free Range Eggs

 

From hens fed a vegetarian whole-grain diet

Our hens are free to roam our paddocks and therefore may consume natural food sources other than the vegetarian feed as they forage.

One of Australia's most nutritious and least expensive natural food items is now available in an improved form - Veggs for Families® fat modified eggs. These eggs are now enriched with omega-3 fatty acids from flax seed offering a non fish source of vital fatty acids.

These eggs are ideal for the whole family, and will particularly appeal to the health conscious consumer. Veggs for Families® eggs taste delicious. They are laid by healthy hens fed on a specially formulated fat modified, vegetarian diet. This diet contains only the best quality natural ingredients such as wheat, alfalfa, sunflower seeds, marigold, corn and milo.

Soya bean protein replaces animal protein, and along with linseed and canola, contributes to the presence of beneficial omega-3 fatty acids in the egg yolk. No hormones or artificial yolk colours are added to the feed.

A breakfast containing Veggs for Families® eggs is a good start to the day for young and old - from toddlers to older folk. Just add fruit juice and toast for an economical, well balanced and easily digested meal.
