At any rate, delicious

Translated from Japanese: I love eggs and I usually eat them boiled, fried, and scrambled without much seasoning, but these eggs are delicious! When I boiled the eggs, I inadvertently heated it a little longer, but it was still very delicious.

Fresh! White yolk!??

Translated from Japanese: I was surprised because it was whiter than the ones in the supermarket, but I was convinced by seeing the feed of the chickens.

Light rather than rich
No unpleasant taste and no odor
It’s an egg that you can eat as many as you like.

I forgot the salt and made a fried egg
It’s delicious enough to eat as it is.

Free-Range Eggs from the Teramachi Family in Gifu (10-40 Eggs)

Horizon Farms
PL511
Buy More, Save More

Due to the high demand, the farm is no longer able to promise us a stable supply. We are very sorry for the inconvenience caused hereby. The amount of their supply fluctuate time to time, you might be able to buy the eggs directly from the farm.  Please visit their website for more information (Japanese only)

Bringing your free-range eggs directly from the family farm to your plate. When we say directly we mean directly. This item is Shipped directly from the Teramachi family to you. The order box will arrive separately from other contents of your order. Please note that the family can only dispatch orders on Tuesday and Friday. Thank you for your understanding. We'll tell you everything you need to know about free-range eggs below. One box contains 10 eggs. The price per egg becomes cheaper as the number of eggs ordered increases. If you keep them in the refrigerator and cook them thoroughly, you can use them for about a month, so we recommend buying 3 or 4 packs at a time.

The Teramachis live with their 3 young children in Mino, in the Gifu prefecture of Japan. Mino is known for Washi, Udatsu roofed houses and friendly neighbors. They own and literally live on a large field producing one of Japan's finest rice and a handful of vegetables. What started as a hobby became a small business over time. Currently, all their vegetables are sold out throughout the year to friends, family, and local customers in the area. 

Their small scale egg farm is a new extension to their family business and is directly placed on the field next to their all-wooden house. The whole family takes part in the business - even the little ones help out whenever they can or want. The hens have roof shelter but no walls, space to freely roam around, climb and carry out natural behaviors such as nesting, roosting, and foraging. See images. The feed consists of a variety of non-GMO, including rice and green vegetables either self-produced or sourced feed (everything is listed below). It goes without saying that the hens are never force-fed and never is their beak clipped. 

Things you need to know about eggs:

About yolk color: The egg’s yolk color is affected mainly by the hen's diet. Hens at the Teramachi farm 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. (see more below). Therefore the yolk color is lighter than your usual caged egg. 

About differences in nutritional value: There is a misconception about outer shell and yolk color and its effect on nutritional value. It is important to point out the current science's standpoint. There is none to little nutritional difference between caged eggs, free-range eggs, and organic eggs, white eggs, brown eggs, small eggs, and big eggs unless the eggs have been enriched or modified. 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. 

About pasture-raising: In Japan, due to avian influenza (bird flu) and wild predators such as foxes, it is very risky for small farms (or chicken farms in general) to leave the hens roaming outside freely on pasture as it is very likely they might get infected or eaten. This and the scarcity of space are the main reasons why pasture-raised chicken is a very rare sight in Japan. Nevertheless, we strongly believe that the ability for hens lay their eggs in nests, run and spread their wings are basic requirements for ethical farming. For this reason, we have selected the Teramachi farm which shares our beliefs and concept.

Translated from Japanese: It’s my first time making hamburger steak out of pork.
It was light and my family loved it.
I will buy it again.
Actually… our dog was also interested in it and seemed to want it.
I want to buy some for him, too.
Because he couldn’t stop sniffing it, I think it’s really delicious meat.

Healthy meat!

Translated from Japanese: I mixed it with onions to make a hamburger steak. I made 3 large hamburgers. It's a small package, so you won’t waste any. It was delicious.

Translated from Japanese: There is not much minced meat that you can eat with no worries, so this one saved me. I made meat sauce by mixing it with minced meat of grass-fed beef. It was better than usual. I thought that the ingredients are the most important when cooking.

Organic and delicious

Translated from Japanese: I made a hamburger steak with this store’s minced pork and minced beef and it was very popular with my family!
Very delicious and I will order this again ^ - ^

I made meatloaf

Translated from Japanese: I made meatloaf by combining this minced meat with minced meat from Australia.
I used onions, carrots, salt, pepper and soy sauce and kneaded everything with eggs until the meat turned sticky and formed it into sticks.
I put it in the oven at 170 degrees for 20 minutes first, and then at 200 degrees for 10 minutes.
I made very delicious meatloaf 😘
The gravy, when you put it in your mouth, is the best.

Delicious, spicy sausages

These sausages have just the right amount of flavor and spice and are very juicy. I have served them to friends and they all love them! They are pretty spicy for kids, though.
I recommend these if you like a bit of spice.

Perfect spiciness!

Translated from Japanese: I cooked them in a frypan and then put them into a lentil stew. Without adding salt to the lentils, I ate it together and the perfect degree of spiciness was amazing.
Because the skin is thick, it’s very elastic, so there might be people who can’t bite through it with their teeth (I took a big bite). But if you properly use a knife and fork, you can eat with no problems. It might be better to cook the sausages on low flame until the skin is slightly burned. I didn’t cook them the way you can see them in the pictures on the website.
I will order again!

The outside is crispy! The inside meaty!

Translated from Japanese: Because of corona, I can’t go out, so I think having a BBQ can be fun. Spicy sausages and beer, there’s no better combination. The outside is crispy, there’s a prickling sound when you bite into them and the inside is juicy. Delicious~! These are big, filling sausages that are perfectly meaty. I want to try country style sausages next!

Translated from Japanese: For those who love meat. The herbs and the Italian flavor are amazing, it made me think “This is awesome!” I might order them again.

When boiled, the skin remains and it’s difficult to eat.

As gift

Translated from Japanese: When I was looking for a Father’s Day gift for my father who is a gourmet, I found this shop!
It looks delicious because it’s without additives! And it’s pork.
He told me that it was very filling, very juicy and delicious. I want to eat it myself next time (^^)

Translated from Japanese: I started to worry about the effects of processed meat additives on my body, so I bought this. The meat tastes solid, juicy and delicious. When I cooked it with a skillet, the sausage stuck to the iron plate and the thin skin ripped. The gravy and fat poured out. I'll be careful not to tear it while cooking.

Translated from Japanese: I'm in the process of reviewing my eating habits and found this store that is a little expensive but safe.
No seasoning or preparation is needed and it’s very enjoyable to cook it.
I want to try the other meat products, too.

Even when you forget to defrost it

Translated from Japanese: Herb flavor is my favorite seasoning and it’s more delicious than any sausage I have ever eaten.
Even if I carelessly forgot to defrost it, I put it in a frying pan with water, covered it, cooked it slowly over low heat and cooked it over high heat until it turned brown.

As gift.

Translated from Japanese: The bacon in this photo looks very delicious and I bought it with sausages as a gift for Father's Day.
I don't see many additive-free, salt-free and delicious foods, so I was able to give a good gift.
Both my father and mother were pleased.
The store isn't too far away, so I'd like to go buy it for myself next time.

Translated from Japanese: I arrived here looking for additive-free bacon.
I took the plunge and bought them all at once and I was surprised at how delicious they were.
It’s currently sold out, but I would like to purchase it again (when they’re back in stock).

Surprisingly delicious

Translated from Japanese: The natural flavor of the pork itself and the smoked flavor are exquisite and really delicious. I received thick slices, but the balance of the spices suit thin slices better.
