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.

Bacon & Egg Quesadillas

        
          
Ingredients:
  • 1 cup shredded Pepper Jack cheese (4 oz.)
  • 4 large flour Tortillas (10 to 12-inch)
  • 4 slices crisp-cooked bacon
  • 1/4 cup sliced green onions
  • 8 EGGS, beaten
Instructions:
  1. Sprinkle 1/4 cup cheese on one side of each tortilla. Top each with 1 bacon slice and 1 tbsp. green onion.
  2. Coat large nonstick skillet with cooking spray; Heat over medium heat until hot. Pour in eggs. As eggs begin to set, gently pull the eggs across the pan with an inverted turner, forming large soft curds. Continue cooking – pulling, lifting and folding eggs – until thickened and no visible liquid egg remains. Do not stir constantly.
  3. Spoon eggs on top of bacon, dividing evenly. Fold tortilla over filling to cover, pressing gently.
  4. Clean skillet. Coat with cooking spray; Heat over medium-low heat until hot. Toast quesadillas, one at a time, just until cheese is melted, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Cut into wedges.
