      Thanks for your question, Kara. At Nellie’s Free Range, we are deeply committed to ethical egg production on free range small family farms. In 2003 we became the first Certified Humane egg producer in the US. We also believe in transparency when it comes to food production. That’s why we conduct public tours on family farms to allow consumers to come and see exactly how our eggs are produced. During those tours we allow photography and videos because we are proud of the way we produce and have nothing to hide. The recently released video was captured on one of those tours. Every aspect of the Frey Family Farm depicted in the video meets Certified Humane’s Free Range standard. The hens have the ability to move freely throughout the barn and to go outside onto grass pasture. Free range and pasture-raised hens spend part of their days inside and part outside. Hens are social animals and like to congregate closely together. So, while it may look crowded, we assure you the hens are comfortable. You can read Certified Humane’s full rebuttal of PETA’s claims at https://certifiedhumane.org/petas-latest/ Organizations such as PETA aim to end all animal agriculture, so even humane producers like us will never meet their standards. Meanwhile, nearly 85% of all laying hens in the US are still housed in cages and never see the light of day. To disparage the slim minority of family farmers who are leading the charge towards a more humane food system seems counterproductive. If you have any specific questions about the video please feel free to send us a direct message or email us at kindnesscrew@nelliesfreerange.com. We hope you’ll join us on our next tour!
