Choose Dare 2 Dream Farms
Humanely Raised, Pastured Hens
Our outdoor-based farming method means our chickens each have approximately 30-40 square feet of space of fresh pasture, compared with less than one square foot of space in commercial flocks. They forage on grains such as buckwheat, rye grass, and clover to provide a diet naturally high in Omega-3's, meaning you get bright orange egg yolks full of great flavor!
Hands, Not Machines
Our laying hens are tended to by humans, not machines. We raise them ourselves on the farm. They are fed by us, rather than by an automated feed booms. Their eggs are collected, washed, packaged, and delivered by our farmers...
all by hand.
Local Family Farm
Our eggs are sold at our farm stand, to our CSA members, and to retailers only in Central and Southern California. Our local eggs are as fresh as you can find, their quality isn't compromised by a lengthy nationwide shipping process, and your carbon footprint is greatly reduced. Choosing Dare 2 Dream Farms eggs means you're supporting a local California family farm.
It comes as no surprise that hens in a low stress outdoor environment, allowed to exercise, breathe fresh air, sun and dust themselves, and forage for bugs, grains, seeds, fruits, and leafy greens pack more natural nutrition into their eggs than indoor hens who are overcrowded, stressed, and debeaked.
