5-eggThis category of producers represents the “gold standard” in organic egg production. These brands are especially dedicated to the ideals of organic agriculture and go above and beyond the minimum requirements set by the organic standards. Producers in this top tier manage diverse, small-to-medium-scale family farms. They emphasize well-managed outdoor areas, have a high standard for animal welfare, and land stewardship.

1-eggBrands fall into this category when we suspect that they are (or source from) what we would describe as “factory farms.” These brands are still better than factory farmed conventional eggs but are at the bottom of the ratings among organic brands. We may have outstanding questions or concerns regarding their practices and possibly their compliance with USDA organic regulations.
