Animal Welfare

"The Health and Welfare of Laying Hens is Paramount"

Since our beginnings as a family chicken farm in the early 1930s, Rose Acre Farms has made the health of the laying hens a top priority. We put considerable resources toward advancing scientific understanding of animal husbandry best practices, and we use this knowledge to increase the health and quality of life of laying hens.  

Animal welfare is central to our business, but it is also a foundational value of our company. We believe that good stewardship of resources includes humane and caring treatment of the animals in our care, so we go above and beyond requirements and standards to ensure that the chickens are well cared for as an integral component of our egg production operations. Caring for hens is the backbone of Rose Acre Farms’ company culture.

Rose AcreTM Recipe of the Month

Breakfast Tacos

        
          
Ingredients:
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 lb diced russet potatoes
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon paprika
  • 6 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • 6 slices of bacon
  • 6 flour tortillas
  • shredded cheddar cheese
  • Grape tomatoes sliced
  • Cilantro diced
  • salsa
Instructions:
  1. Heat a large skillet with the olive oil over medium heat. Add in the diced potato, add the salt and paprika. Stir to combine. Allow to cook for about 8-10 minutes (stirring only a few times to prevent sticking but allowing them to get crispy) until the potatoes are softened and slightly crispy on the outside. Remove the potatoes to a plate and set aside.
  2. In the same skillet add the bacon and allow to cook for about 5-7 minutes until crispy. Remove to a plate and dry with paper towels. Cut slices in half.
  3. In a medium size bowl beat the eggs with the milk and mix in the salt and pepper.
  4. Spray a small skillet with non-stick spray. Pour in the egg mixture. Stir occasionally while the eggs cook to scramble them.
  5. Layer the tortillas with the breakfast potatoes, bacon and scrambled eggs. Top with any additional toppings. Serve warm and enjoy.
