Hidden Nest specializes in eggs from small-scale, family farmers. These farms are located in central Pennsylvania and are hand-gathered daily. The hens freely roam the meadows every day and feast on organically grown grass with no pesticides. On farms such as these, there are fewer than 350 hens per acre which allows for plenty of space to freely move about. We believe this produces a very high-quality, nutritious egg.
Some of these farms do not have electricity running through them, which means that the feeding, watering, and gathering of the eggs must be done by hand. But on family-run farms such as these, every family member pitches in to make sure the work gets done.
When you purchase Hidden Nest eggs, you are supporting the livelihood of these farmers and are encouraging the continuation of local, sustainable farms.
