Our Naturegg Solar Free Range products reflect our sustainable and responsible farming practices, our family values, and our commitment to nourishing Canadian communities from coast to coast.”

The new offerings come from free range hens that are housed in open-concept barns with access to the outdoors and are fed a diet of wholesome ingredients and whole grains.
