We love our producers, suppliers and vendors and we think most of them have some pretty interesting stories behind their products too. We’re sharing some of our favorites here in an ongoing series.
At Nature Fed, the chickens always come first.
“That’s how you get better eggs,” says Marketing Coordinator Brandy Gamoning. “Our Nature Fed Eggs are Non-GMO Project verified, and the hens eat feed milled by our own family farms."
They’re also only available at Whole Foods Market® and certified by Humane Farm Animal Care. This ensures that in addition to being cage free, the hens are provided with perches, nestboxes and scratching areas so they can engage in natural behaviors. They are never fed antibiotics or added hormones.
The hens that lay Nature Fed eggs are raised and cared for by a network of small, family-owned farms in Illinois. Farms within the same community also mill the chickens’ Non-GMO Project Verified feed.
“We carefully choose farmers who take a holistic approach,” Brandy says. “Caring for the land is everything to them, and they view caring for animals as part of the same mission.”
