Pete & Gerry's Organic Eggs

Pete & Gerry's Organic Eggs

Pete and Gerry's Organic Eggs are organically produced in the fresh air of the White Mountains of New Hampshire. So what makes them organic?


Their hens eat organic grain beginning on their second day of life. They don't give their hens antibiotics or medications. And no pesticides or herbicides are used in the production of the grain that they eat.

What else makes these eggs great? The grain their hens eat is made of certified organic flaxseed, which contains high levels of Omega-3 fatty acids. The Omega-3 in the hen's diet is passed on to their eggs - each egg contains about 200mg of Omega-3. Two of their eggs contain as much Omega-3 as you'll get in 1.5 ounces of fish.

Their hens are raised in cage-free barns, where they can choose where they will lay their eggs and where they want to be. Their hens are also given access to the outdoors.

Their motto? "Happy chickens lay better eggs." I believe it. These are delicious, and I feel good buying them, knowing their hens are treated with kindness and respect.

I was and have been a huge fan of theirs! I have their eggs in my fridge now...But, and there is a but. There is nothing humane about them or make it diffrent than buying any other eggs. They only keep their hens for 15 months and ship them off to a live market in New York City to be sold to as they put it to 'ethnic people'; what ever that means.So yes they get a vegetarain diet and no one is torturing them while they live there producing but once they no longer produce they sent off just regular hatchery would do. There is no difference except for the price.I am so disappointed in them. Just found this all out today and have been buying their eggs since they found their way to my supermarket; at least 2 years.

I go to Albertsons and Publix regularly. Publix does have a "Greenwise" section, and organic milk and eggs, but like I said, they run out. Albertsons used to carry organic eggs, but I haven't seen any there for months. I just cope by not eating as many eggs as I would like to, because I just can't stomach them unless I know they were produced in a friendly way, you know?

babyashley - Does your regular grocery store have a health food section? Or sometimes they are mixed in with the regular eggs.

I'm big on eating free-roam and organic eggs... but my only problem is finding them in stores. Whole Foods is always a choice, but the nearest one is 45 minutes away and I can only make it there maybe twice a month. Our local grocery stores never carry them, or run out quickly. It's very frustrating.
