the happy egg co. is proud to announce it has been named the winner of Best New Egg in the 2014 Better Homes and Gardens Best New Product Awards. The award is based on the 2014 BrandSpark/Better Homes and Gardens American Shopper Study of 80,000 voters nationwide.
With President Obama signing the Agriculture Act of 2014 on February 7th, California's Prevention of Farm Animal Cruelty Act (Prop 2), a leading animal welfare act passed by voters in 2008, stands firm. The final Agriculture Act does not include a controversial amendment that would have nullified the state specific animal welfare requirements. Thus, egg-laying hens in California must soon be able to turn around freely, lie down, stand up, and fully extend their limbs while confined in their cages.
Last week, the happy egg co. celebrated a significant milestone eclipsing one-million dozen Free Range eggs sold in the U.S. The company has also released data on its first year of selling Free Range on pasture eggs to consumers throughout the U.S. grocery market.
Happy birds make delicious eggs, with the nutritious, golden yolks that nature intended. The happy egg co. farms let hens be hens, because the happy egg co. believes that when they live better, they lay better eggs.
Continuing its mission to make high quality, Free Range on pasture eggs accessible across the U.S., the happy egg co. announced today it will once again expand its distribution network with the addition of The Fresh Market grocery chain.
