They write: “I want to tell you about our organic eggs. Here at Milo’s Poultry Farms, I have chickens that roam on our organic farms in Northeast Wisconsin. I now have birds on other family farms besides my own due to customer demand, but I own the birds and supply the feed, so I have control over egg quality and also see to it that they have access to the outdoors and green grass as much as the seasons and the weather permit. All of my hens are fed the same, so the color of the shell has nothing to do with the quality inside. My chickens are fed an all vegetarian diet which includes vitamins, minerals, herbs, and a high source of Omega-3 fatty acids from flax seed. Whenever the garden and flower beds are not in production, they have a run of the farm; otherwise I rotate them between different pens to keep them picking through the fresh grass.”
