Eggs in Harmony with Nature
What’s regenerative farming?
Regenerative agriculture is a set of farming principles and practices that prioritize preserving and regenerating topsoil, leading to better outcomes for farmers, animals, people, and the planet.
Cover crops help keep soil soft and spongy, So it can retain water, support plant life, and absorb carbon.
Livestock, like Helpful Hens, enthusiastically step in for tilling and pesticides, grazing cover crops and grubs and fertilizing land as they wish.
Diverse plantings replace monocrops, attracting and supporting wildlife, including pollinators, birds, and other critters.
All Helpful Hens™ eggs are certified by Certified Humane® and appear on the ASPCA®’s list of certified farms and products.
A sustainable future starts in the soil....
Not all dirt is created equal. And while American farmland has a lot of dirt, it’s short on topsoil—the rich, plant-nourishing, carbon-balancing material that a healthy planet is built upon. Helpful Hens help tend the land by grazing, aerating and fertilizing, restoring soil health just by living on the farm!
Regenerative agriculture supports the farmer too, creating farmland that's more resilient to extreme weather.
Flapping toward a healthier future for all
Our farmland and all it supports can thrive again. With the help of farmers, scientists, climatologists, and partner organizations, we’re flying the coop on industrial farming for a brighter future, where farmland is lush and resilient, animals big and small live how they wish, food is healthy, and the planet’s carbon balance is equalized again.
We’re tracking the ecological outcomes from diversifying farm crops beyond single plants to understand the impacts big and small.
