Free Run - Hens in open, cage-free environments produce the free run eggs. The eggs laid in nests or perches are hand picked just the way they used to be.

Types of Gold Eggs AlbertaGrain Fed - The Grain Fed eggs comes from chickens that have been fed a special diet to produce the freshest and best tasting eggs possible. This all-grain diet may include oats, barley, wheat, corn, soya and flax. This feed contains no additives, perservatives, medications, antibiotics or hormones.
Omega 3 - Omega 3 eggs have been produced with a fortified multi-grain feed in order to enhance the essential nutrients like the anti-oxidants Vitamin E and Omega 3. Omega-3 Essential Fatty Acids are polyunsaturated fats. These are found in cold water ocean fish, soybean and flaxseed. Hens are fed a special diet that contains 10-20% ground flaxseed thereby producing omega-3 enriched eggs. It has been known for many years that polyunsaturated fatty acids play a role in reducing the risk of heart disease. These essential Fatty acids are also required for the normal development of the brain, nerve tissues and eyes. The human body cannot produce essential fatty acids such as Omega 3s, so they must be consumed in the diet. Vitamin E and Omega 3 fatty acids are essential nutrients for the maintenance of good health, normal growth and development. The Omega 3 egg can provide approximately 1/4 to 1/3 of the recommended intake of Omega 3 fatty acids.
