Organic Valley Hens are Free to Forage™
Because “free-range” isn’t regulated and can mean different things across brands, the Organic Valley “Free to Forage” seal is our way of providing clarity to you on what free-range means to us. Free to Forage means “access to fresh air, sunshine and organic pasture that is free from toxic pesticides.” It’s about putting hens in charge of their own needs. They have access to food and water 24/7, and they can go where they want, when they want (weather permitting, of course). Chickens have shown us what they need over the 25 years we’ve raised them, and that’s why we exceed the animal care requirements of the National Organic Standards. When you see the Free to Forage seal on our packages in your local stores, you can rest assured we go above and beyond for hens, and for you.
