OPEN RANGE

"Open Range" is a term we use because the current standards of “Free Range” simply don’t represent what we do at Possum Creek. We feel it is time for a new standard that actually matches the perception that it gives. We believe “Open Range” best describes happy healthy hens roaming freely with plenty of space and plenty of fresh pasture, which can only be obtained by frequent paddock rotation.

PASTURE FED

We believe that optimal health for our hens and the best nutritious tasting eggs comes from a healthy diet of fresh pasture. Being ‘Pasture Fed’ means our hens are constantly grazing and foraging through fresh green organic pastures of grasses and weeds as well as all the bugs and insects that live there. Chickens are omnivores just like us, and like us they are healthiest when they eat fresh healthy greens everyday.

NO DEBEAKING

We have made an ethical commitment at Possum Creek to only have hens that have had no "Debeaking" or “Beak Trimming”. We do this not only from an Ethical standpoint, but also from a health standpoint. With their pointy sharp beaks intact our hen’s can get at all types of bugs, insects, weeds and grasses that most chickens simply can’t get. This is another very important aspect of producing the healthiest, tastiest eggs.
