Really, Free- Range EGGS in Reno -

Note: BEWARE ! Cage-free eggs/ hens are usually NOT Really Pasture-Raised/ Free- Roaming
and "vegetarian-fed" or soybean fed is not a natural, healthy diet for hens.
Commercial eggs that have Free- Range printed on the box are usually NOT Really Pasture-Raised/ Free- Roaming, because there is no legal definition for Free-Range - and so the term is very often used deceptively!!!


and for more info.


Some of the eggs at Great Basin Community Food Co-op are Really, Really Pasture-Raised/ Free- Roaming -
-and some are NOT - see above caveat! -- you might need to ask the Co-op staff exactly which are which.

note: even Really, Free- Range Eggs usually still get supplemental feed - WAPF recommends gmo-free and soy-free feed, if possible.

- some hens are fed ORGANIC supplemental feed -
which means that the feed should not contain gmo's, or been treated with pesticides or chemical fertilizers, etc.
- ask the Co-op staff if they're not clearly marked which are which.

- Whole Foods Market has some Really, Free- Range Pastured Eggs --
- again, some hens are fed ORGANIC supplemental feed - those are marked "organic" ---- Update -- they now also have Pasture Verde pasture-raised organic eggs by Vital Farms, which have received a very high rating by Cornucopia Institute -- see

Natural Grocers - has some pasture-raised organic eggs - but not rated as high by Cornucopia Institute - see -- eggs vary by how many hours per month they are actually outdoors,, as well as other factors.
