These are the first-ever certified organic free-range eggs in Japan. The hens are raised in a pristine clean natural environment surrounded by the 3000m high Yamanashi mountains. The winters are cold, but the summers are nice and cool, making it a very comfortable environment for the hens. No antibiotics, growth hormones, or any other chemicals are given to the hens - ever.
It is extremely difficult to obtain the Japanese organic certification for egg-laying hens, as there are strict standards for what they eat, what they drink, and where they live - even the soil they are roaming on. The hens are fed mainly soybeans and corn, but the soybeans and corn must be grown without pesticides as well as be non-genetically modified to be considered organic feed. In addition, Japanese organic certification organizations must accompany inspect the farm verify that the corn has been grown without pesticides or chemical fertilizers for three whole years before it can be certified.
In addition to the corn and soybeans, from time to time they are also fed a special homemade feed containing rice bran, okara, seaweed, boiled red bean skin, oyster shell, and chlorella to further support their health - all to organic standards. All ingredients in the feed are, of course, GMO-free. The hens drink cool natural spring water, rich in calcium and natural minerals, which nicely carries over to the eggs.

These eggs are so good that my children eat it almost everyday cooked in butter with some bacon.
My family and I eat them every single day. They are very tasty.
One of my favorite combinations is hard-boiled eggs with salmon and avocado over a bed of greens and vegetables. So delicious.
Translated from Japanese: I don’t usually like raw eggs, but these had no odor and were delicious.
I can no longer eat scary commercial products that pursue only cheapness.
