Please note that this product will be shipped refrigerated from late April through September. Eggs are shipped for delivery on the earliest possible date. Unfortunately, due to the quick nature of expiration, delivery date requests can't be specified. Delivery time-frame requests, however, are possible. If you purchase eggs along with other items, the eggs may arrive separately.
The eggs you will receive are from either the Yamano Family Farm (aka. Natural Egg Lab) or Kurofuji Farm. Both farms raise their hens free-range throughout the year, and Horizon Farms is proud to offer both of their high-quality products after talking directly with the farms. Please note that we are not able to support specific farm requests. See below for more information about the farms.
Free-range eggs directly from the family farm to your plate. One pack contains 6 eggs. The minimum is two packs. Unfortunately, temperature-controlled shipping is the main cost factor, we highly recommend buying more than 2 packs. If you keep them in the refrigerator the best before date is approximately one week for raw consumption, but when cooked can be consumed even after the written expiration date.
The hens are raised stress-free in a free-range and natural environment. They have space to freely roam around, climb and carry out natural behaviors such as nesting, roosting, and foraging. They can run around and stretch their wings to their heart's desire. It goes without saying that the hens are never force-fed, and never given any chemicals such as preventative antibiotics or growth hormones. Because they are less stressed they are less likely to get sick - meaning they grow up both physically and mentally healthy, without the use of drugs.
These farms are committed not only to the health of the hens, but also to the quality of the eggs, and continue to pursue premium egg quality by blending in their own carefully selected seasonal green feed such as grass and greens, vegetables, fruits, and other high-quality feed. All feed is non-GMO. The eggs have a rich texture with no odor and an incredible milky taste. We hope you will enjoy our carefully selected high-quality eggs that can be enjoyed with peace of mind by the whole family. Please check the bottom of this page for photos taken at the real farms.
Things you need to know about free-range eggs.
About yolk color: The egg’s yolk color is affected mainly by the hen's diet. Free-range hens are not fed a diet for the sole purpose to darken the yolk but are rather fed a healthy and well balanced and sustainable mix. Therefore the yolk color is lighter than your usual caged egg.
About vitamin enrichment: Vitamin-enriched eggs are popular in Japan and these are obtained by feeding the hens much higher doses of feed containing vitamin E or D which will show up as residues in the egg. Free-range eggs are not artificially enriched.
About pasture-raising: In Japan, due to the existence of avian influenza (bird flu) and wild predators, it is very risky for chicken farms to leave the hens roaming outside the fences. For this reason, most free-range hens in Japan are protected by a fence as seen in the images. This does not limit the ability of the hens to lay their eggs in nests, run and spread their wings which are basic requirements for ethical farming.
