All Organic Valley chickens have access to organic pastures, where they spend their days clucking, strutting and pecking at bugs and earthworms. On rainy days, the chickens stay in the coop, but keeping them happy and healthy is our highest priority.

Frequently Asked Questions

What makes Organic Valley Eggs organic?

All Organic Valley Eggs come to you from our cooperative of family farmers working in harmony with nature.

  • All of our family farms are certified organic by the USDA.
  • Certified organic farms are required to follow the strict production standards of the USDA's National Organic Program (www.ams.usda.gov/nop) and are inspected and audited for compliance by an independent third-party at least once every year.
  • Organic farmers do not use antibiotics, synthetic hormones, toxic pesticides, or GMOs.
  • To become certified organic, pasture and the land on which it is grown cannot be treated with synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides, or GMOs for a minimum of three years.
  • Organic feed must not contain GMOs or products from GMO sources.
Why are Organic Valley eggs brown?

The biggest misconception out there is that all eggshells are naturally brown. In reality, the color of the chicken's egg entirely depends on the breed of chicken. Technically all eggs start white, but different breeds are genetically coded to release different-colored pigments as the egg passes through the hens' oviduct. Just like when you dye Easter eggs, the pigment doesn't penetrate the shell. Inside, eggs are more or less the same. Organic Valley farmers choose breeds with consistent layers, lay high-quality eggs and have calm, non-aggressive personalities, such as Bovan Browns, Hyline Browns, Lohma Browns, and others. All these breeds produce brown eggs.

Can I use my Organic Valley eggs past the sell by/expiration date?

As a farmer-owned cooperative, we pride ourselves in providing top-quality, nutritious foods to consumers. We cannot recommend consuming any product past the sell-by date. Egg carton dates are regulated at the state level, and the mandated maximum code date will vary from state to state.
