Our Hens

Pete and Gerry’s Organic Eggs are better than factory-farmed eggs because all of our hens are healthy and free to roam. Our Organic, Certified Humane® Free Range farms are the gold standard.

Why Organic Matters

Organic eggs make a huge difference – they’re better for the environment, better for you, and better-tasting, too.

Free Range

When they’re not laying eggs in their spacious barns, our hens are out roosting under beautiful blue skies, scratching into green grass, dust bathing by a tall tree, and so much more. All of our small family farms raise Bovans Browns or Hylines, both of which are brown hen breeds. Bovans Browns are prized for their consistency, laying on a steady schedule and producing beautiful brown-shelled eggs. Bovans Browns are also hardy and fare well in colder temperatures when needed. Similarly, Hylines are known as one of the most efficient hen breeds out there. They tend to produce eggs with very strong shells, and like Bovans Browns, are robust enough to withstand chilly weather.
