As I was shopping recently at Kroger I found a new brand of eggs on the shelf that struck my attention (I even snapped this picture). It was called Blue Sky Family Farm Eggs. I gave them a look and then moved on but thought, I need to check out this brand and do a little research. Ironically a day or two later, I found an email from the brand and they were introducing themselves to me. Wow! That must mean destiny so I agreed to learn more and then decided share this brand with you.
What I found out:
Egg Innovations is a 100 percent Free Range and Pasture Raised egg company that believes in moving Animal Welfare forward and bringing Family Farming back. Egg Innovations is an industry leader for more than 25 years in specialty eggs and has elevated the gold standard for the egg industry with a new brand, Blue Sky Family Farms, which is available in major supermarkets across the Midwest starting August 15, 2015.
Blue Sky Family Farms hold to the highest Humane Farm Animal Care (HFAC) “Certified Humane” standards for Free Range and Pasture Raised eggs. To illustrate the difference and help consumers get to know their eggs, Blue Sky Family Farms introduces the Rating Animal Welfare (R.A.W.) Scorecard.
With its new tag line, “Ethical Eggs for the Humane Race,” Blue Sky Family Farms holds to the highest standard of animal welfare. All hens get a Humane Farm Animal Care (HFAC) “certified” Free Range minimum of two square feet of outside space and more than 108 square feet of Pasture Raised space. Blue Sky Family Farms’ eggs are raised by local family farmers throughout the Midwest. What I love is that there is actually a farm close to us that we might get the chance to visit one day!
The R.A.W. Scorecard rates animal welfare in the egg industry across four levels from one star Caged to Pasture Raised with four stars. Cage Free is rated two stars and Free Range is three.* In addition to great tasting humane eggs, families can feel good about their purchase supporting Family Farmers in America through Egg Innovations industry leading partner farmer contract lengths and returns.
As you know my family only consumes free-range organic eggs so we gave this brand a taste test and found them to be delicious! This brand is in stores in the Cincinnati/NKY area and throughout Illinois, Indiana,Wisconsin, Ohio and Kentucky. Be on the lookout in your store!
