The Country Hen expanded its Hubbardston, Mass., headquarters facility, boasting three new state-of-the-art barns, thus increasing production by 75%.

The maker of the original, organic omega-3 egg also installed a solar energy project, that when completed, will provide 100% of the energy needed for the main farm, including the barns, processing room and feed mill.

In 2002, The Country Hen received organic certification utilizing a porch design for outdoor access. Benefits include the ability to meet FDA egg safety requirements, practical manure management, disease prevention and the reduction of exposure to predators.
