Keep it on the Sunny Side

Eggs are finally getting the nutritional recognition they deserve.
An excellent source of protein, vitamins and antioxidants, eggs are a welcome addition to any diet (unless, of course, you’re allergic or sensitive to eggs). But when you’re shopping for this power food, make it count: choose eggs from pasture-raised hens. These eggs boast a healthier fat profile; two-thirds more vitamin A; two times more omega-3 fatty acids; three times more vitamin E; seven times more beta-carotene and four to six times more vitamin D than conventional caged eggs. Why? These ladies are free to roam, grazing and snacking on bugs, slugs and grass — resulting in a more nutrient-rich egg. And of course, a happier chicken.

The benefits of Pasture-raised Lamb

We’re proud to bring grass-fed Umpqua Valley Lamb to the Easter table. Better tasting and better for you, pasture-raised lamb is higher in omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin C and vitamin E than conventionally-raised lamb, and is an excellent source of protein, vitamin B12, selenium and zinc. Pasture-fed lamb also contains health-promoting conjugated linoleic acid (CLA). CLA is thought to be associated with improved immune and anti-inflammatory function, improved bone mass, improved blood sugar regulation, reduced body fat and better maintenance of lean body mass.

What’s the secret? Well, the lamb are nursed by grass-fed mothers and then raised on 100% pasture. The animal has the opportunity to roam about, grazing on a varied diet of natural foods—allowing the animal to be…well, an animal, and resulting in a tender, mild taste with a more desirable nutritional profile.
