Organic, free range and soy free eggs are the absolute, best eggs to eat. Ninety seven per cent of the eggs in American markets are not organic or free range, so you really have to know where to get the real ones. Soy feed is bad for the hens and disrupts their hormone system as well as accumulating in large amounts in the eggs.
Labels on the cartons may say that they are free range or cage free, but there are loopholes that the egg producers use to call the eggs that when they really aren't. The eggs come from hens that never see the light of day, are crammed in cages and get fed corn, soy and unhealthy fillers.
Here is a list of trustworthy sources for truly organic, free range eggs. These eggs come from healthy chickens that are treated humanely. They are free to roam on pasture or their spacious cages are rotated on fresh pasture to give the hens access to bugs, worms and greens, which makes the best eggs in the world.
Grass Fed Traditions organic eggs are truly the top of the line eggs. The hens are raised by family farmers who keep them in humane coops or pens during the winter months, and give the chickens a diet of coconut-based feed that is highly nutritious. They are never fed allergy producing soy and during the summer months the hens roam freely on fresh Wisconsin pasture. The superior eggs are shipped right to your door in sturdy packaging.
Villarreal Family Farm in Missouri offers fresh, hand collected eggs to anywhere in the United States. The healthy hens are allowed to roam and eat a healthy diet along with supplemental feed that is soy-free, hormone-free and hormone-free. They are never given hormones, GMO's, chemicals or antibiotics.

Fox Fire Farms in Colorado offers fresh, free range chicken eggs that can be shipped anywhere in the United States. The hens are never fed harmful toxins and eat a healthy diet free of soy.
You can search your local farm connections for organic, soy free eggs in your area. It may be hard to find soy free, but some farms are getting smart about soy and changing the chicken feed. It's well worth the higher price for these quality, organic eggs.
The more requests for soy free eggs will cause farmers to supply this demand as most of these sites listed are sold out of soy free eggs.
You don't mention corn in your article-I wonder if any of these farmers are using corn as part of their feed/ If so, we've got a problem because almost all corn in this country is GMO.
Whole Foods Market in Texas, OK, LA, and Arkansas have them!!! Jeremiah Cunningham's World's Best Eggs are delicious!!
