What are organic cage-free eggs? 

Organic eggs are sourced from hens in living conditions that adhere to USDA organic guidelines. Cage-free eggs come from laying hens in conditions that align with USDA cage-free guidelines. Organic cage-free eggs meet all criteria in both categories.

What makes an egg cage-free?

According to USDA guidelines, cage-free eggs must come from hens that can roam freely indoors. These hens must be able to move freely, and they must have full access to food and water. Their spaces must also include predator protection measures, litter, perches, scratch areas, and nesting boxes.

What makes an egg organic?

USDA organic standards require that laying hen feed be organic and not genetically modified. This feed cannot include pesticides, byproduct, synthetic fertilizers, or chemical additives. The hens must not be given antibiotics unless there is an infection or another medical need. These hens’ environments must allow for natural behaviors, such as nesting, dustbathing, and perching. Outdoor access is also required.

Organic cage-free vs. free-range eggs

Though sometimes used interchangeably, the terms “cage-free” and “free-range” differ. Cage-free hens roam freely within an indoor space. Free-range hens roam freely outdoors. Additionally, USDA free-range criteria include all cage-free criteria, though not all free-range eggs meet organic criteria. Organic guidelines primarily dictate the hens’ feed rather than space, though certain organic provisions cover nesting, dustbathing, perching, and outdoor access.

Organic cage-free vs. pasture-raised eggs

Pasture-raised eggs are sourced from hens that roam outdoors freely. Each hen must have at least 108 square feet of space to roam and eat. Organic cage-free eggs come from hens free to roam within an enclosed space. 

Organic cage-free eggs certifications

The USDA regulates the terms “organic” and “cage-free.” As such, all organic cage-free eggs must bear a USDA seal proving their organic and cage-free certifications.
