Holiday Baking and Cooking with Nellie's Eggs + Homemade Egg Nog! @Freerangenellie #sp

Eggs are an important part of my family's diet. And when it comes to eggs, I am careful to select only certified human free range eggs. The holidays are about spending time with friends and family and baking delicious food. As you set off on your holiday cooking and baking bonanza, remember to choose the right eggs.

When it comes to quality, certified humane eggs, Nellie’s Certified Humane Free Range Eggsare a great pick. Nellie’s is committed to providing better lives for hens, which means better eggs for you and your family! Coming from the first Certified Humane® farm in the country, Nellie’s girls (aka hens) are never caged and have as much, or as little, access to outside as they want. Nellie’s also supports a network of small family farms, unlike competitors with massive factory-farm set ups. You can even tour a farm if you're in area! 


WHY CERTIFIED HUMANE FREE RANGE?

Hens have easy access to the outdoors with real grass to peck, play and dust bathe.
The have access to antibiotic free feed and fresh water 24/7.
And much more.

Nellie’s Certified Humane Free Range Eggs are available all over Chicagoland and beyond. Check out this easy store finder tool.

When it comes to an egg-centric holiday recipe, quality eggs are especially important. If you haven't tried homemade eggnog, here's an easy recipe.
