Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Free-range eggs contain more Vitamin D
Mother Earth News - 3/5/2009.
By Cheryl Long – "Free range" refers to chickens being allowed to range freely outdoors where they can eat whatever grass, weed seeds, insects and worms they choose. This results in more nutritious eggs and meat for consumers, and more healthy, humane conditions for the birds.
