The Helpful Hens product line will include four styles of eggs – Pasture Raised Organic, Pasture Raised Non-GMO, Free Range Non-GMO, and Free Range Organic – all coming from hens that are raised in complete support of their natural behaviors, all while sustaining efforts to restore the earth to its most organic state.

Regenerative farming is a boost to sustainable efforts in food production, with techniques being implemented Blue Sky Farms showing as the following: 

  • Practices that create a rich environment for plants, pollinators, and hens to thrive, including careful planning of nutrient-rich cover crops and trees to help absorb carbon while purifying the air.
  • Implementing a three-tiered vegetation program in the pasture including grasses, shrubs, and trees, allowing for carbon sequestration to occur at multiple elevations in the pasture.
  • Twenty species of diverse vegetation that will allow healthy interactions between plants and animals, and shade for hens.
  • Frequent testing of soil and bird behavior as a form of measurement to determine benchmarks for its regenerative practices and performance metrics for future farms.
