Organic vs. Non-GMO: Why JMZ Farms Chooses USDA Certified-Organic Feed

Howdy, fellow farm enthusiasts! My name is Michael Jimenez, and I’m the proud 22-year-old owner of JMZ Farms. Here at JMZ Farms, I’m all about raising happy, healthy hens and providing you with the best, freshest eggs possible. Today, I want to chat with you about something super important: the difference between organic and non-GMO feed and why I choose USDA-certified organic feed for my beloved laying hens.


What’s the Difference?

Let’s start with the basics. You might have heard the terms “organic” and “non-GMO” and wondered what they mean. Well, here’s a simple explanation:


Organic Feed: This means the feed is made from ingredients that are grown without synthetic pesticides, herbicides, or fertilizers. Organic feed is also free from genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and contains no antibiotics or hormones. It’s like giving my hens the purest, most natural diet possible.


Non-GMO Feed: Non-GMO feed means the ingredients are not genetically modified. However, it can still be grown with synthetic pesticides, herbicides, and fertilizers. So, while it’s a step in the right direction, it’s not as strict or as pure as organic feed.


Why JMZ Farms Chooses Organic Feed

At JMZ Farms, I believe in going the extra mile to ensure my hens are healthy and happy. Here’s why I choose USDA-certified organic feed over non-GMO feed:


Healthier Hens: Organic feed is free from harmful chemicals and additives. This means my hens aren’t exposed to anything that could harm their health. Healthy hens lay better eggs, and I only want the best for my girls!


Better for the Environment: Organic farming practices are better for the environment because they don’t rely on synthetic chemicals. This helps keep the soil, water, and air clean and healthy. As someone passionate about farming, I am dedicated to protecting our beautiful planet, ensuring that future generations can continue farming for years to come.


Nutrient-Rich Eggs: Studies have shown that eggs from hens fed organic feed can have higher nutrient levels, like omega-3 fatty acids and vitamins. When you crack open a JMZ Farms egg, you’ll see the difference in the rich, vibrant yolk and taste the freshness in every bite.


No GMOs: By choosing organic feed, we ensure that our hens are not consuming genetically modified ingredients. This is important to us because we believe in keeping things as natural as possible.


Fun Fact

Did you know? I buy my feed from Coyote Creek Organic Feed Mill, a local organic feed mill located in Elgin, Texas, ensuring my hens get top-quality nutrition. Also, a hen can lay over 300 eggs in a year! That’s almost one egg a day! The hens at JMZ Farms are true superstars, and I make sure they get the best care and diet to keep them laying those delicious, nutritious eggs for you and your family.
