The Packing House Inc. has paired with Dr. Steven Leeson from Guelph University to develop a non-GMO feed program for the hens raised by Mennonites in St. Jacobs Country. They use a variety of grasses, fermented grains, as well as dried and ground grubs. This gives the hens a well-balanced feed that promote a higher fat content and darker yolks on the Roche Colour Fan. This in turn affects the flavour – giving Packing House eggs a deeply rich flavour. The hens are a mix of breeds that lay lots of different colours. You may find brown, speckled, pink, and even green eggs in your dozen! The hens are also given access to the outdoors when the weather permits (Ontario winters can be rough for everyone, birds alike!), and are graded at a local facility. The hens themselves are raised hormone and antibiotic-free, from three family farms.
