If you are concerned with sustainability and animal living conditions, we recommend learning about the differences. Scroll down to see the resource we have provided to Certified Humane. If you want the best eggs, opt to splurge and grab some pasture-raised eggs. They each get at least 108 square feet and spend their days outside and are allowed some corn and soy based feed, grass, bugs, works and anything else they find to eat. Caged, Free range, and cage-free eggs all get much smaller square footage allotments less than 2 ft and primarily eat a diet of corn and soy. There's also a few research studies out there that state pasture raised eggs have higher levels of omega-3 fats, Vitamin D, Vitamin E, and beta carotene.
