Pasture Raised Laying Hens
At Deer Run Acres, we prioritize the well-being of our animals and the land they inhabit. For nine months of the year, our diligent care is evident as we move our laying hens to fresh pastures using a mobile chicken coop. During the winter months, the flock is moved to a coop with a deep bed of wood chips to provide comfort and warmth.
Throughout the year, our hens enjoy the outdoors, benefiting from natural elements like fresh air, grass, insects, and space to explore. This rotational approach also helps enrich the soil with their manure, promoting healthier pastures for our other animals and enhancing the quality of our eggs.
Our mobile coop offers a safe and comfortable space for our hens to rest, while also allowing convenient access to their nesting boxes.
Our pasture-raised eggs not only offer great taste but are also a source of wholesome nutrition. They contain double the omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin E compared to commercial eggs. Priced at $5.00 per dozen, these eggs can be picked up at the farm or delivered to your doorstep every two weeks or on a monthly basis within a 25-mile radius of our farm, making it easy to enjoy their goodness.
