No fishy feeds, antibiotics or cooped-up coops – only the best conditions for our chickens. Kauai stores serve chicken and eggs that are farmed free range and feather-friendly.
What is free range?
Free range means that the chickens roam freely without any constraints and are fed an organic, all-vegetarian diet that’s free of antibiotics and pesticides. Free range farms provide facilities where the chickens are able to live as naturally as possible and are able to go outside when they want throughout their laying cycle. The chickens have access to scratching areas, perches, litter and nests.
Why free range is better!
Free range chickens are known for producing eggs that are more nutrient dense than those from caged chickens. Chickens that are free to roam around, have a more versatile selection of vitamins and minerals like Vitamins B, D, A, Potassium, and Sodium. Due to the better standard of living and better quality diets, the taste of free range chicken is generally better as their quality of life and diet is a lot higher.
Why we use free range
You can’t go wrong with farmers who do the right thing, so we pick our partners for sustainability, source ethically and go to great lengths to support local producers. Kauai stores serve chicken and eggs that are farmed free range and feather-friendly. We are trying to make real healthy food accessible at all times and having free range is part of the journey to get there. We believe in giving you the best while doing the best for the environment.
We have implemented the necessary precautions in-store to protect our staff and our customers during the delivery of all Kauai food, read it here.
We’ve also got a temporary COVID-19 resource portal if you need any additional info.
