What's the difference between free-range and cage-free?

If you're here, chances are you know (or have a hunch) that free-range is a better choice for your family, our hens, and the planet. As for cage-free? It isn't all it's cracked up to be.

See for yourself why everyone loves Nellie's Free Range Eggs

My wife & I have been buying Nellie’s for several years. When I was a child my family had a small flock of chickens, my chores were to gather the eggs and keep the chicken coop clean. Nellie’s eggs have the same great taste as those when I was a child.

Bill and Betty

In my 50 odd years on this planet I have never tasted eggs this fresh and delicious! Seriously, these chickens must be not just happy, but ecstatic. Try [Nellie's], you will not be disappointed.

Maria H.

By far the best eggs we’ve ever tried. [Nellie's] shells are strong, yolks are firm and so much darker than any other. Taste is exceptional!

How to Live Like Nellie and Her Hen Friends

She’s a pretty big deal around the farm: Nellie knows where to find all the juiciest worms, the best spots for a dust bath, and the perfect perch for a bird’s eye view of the pasture. No wonder she’s so popular among her gaggle of gals! When it comes to free-range living, she “kind” of has it all figured out.
