Are Hemp-Fed Eggs the Next Food Trend?

A Pennsylvania-based egg producer and distributor has begun marketing the nation’s first hemp-fed eggs. That’s right. The chickens that lay the eggs are fed a vegetarian diet consisting of 20% hemp seed meal. Their unusual diet is purported to give the eggs added nutrients.

According to the Kreider Farms’ Chiques Creek brand, the eggs contain three times the amount of omega-3 fatty acids compared to regular eggs. They also have 20% more Lutein, four times more Vitamin D, and twice the amount of Vitamin B12.

The Lancaster Farming Industrial Hemp Podcast recently interviewed Kreider Farms owner Dave Andrews from Kreider Farms about Chiques Creek Hemp Eggs. Listen here.
