NASHVILLE, Tenn. (RFDTV) – Natural and Organic foods have never been more popular with American consumers than they are today. In 2014, organic food sales reached $39 billion. It comes as no surprise that many grocery stores carry at least some natural food products, if not an entire section dedicated to them.

Farms like Alexandre Family EcoDairy Farms make it possible for consumers to get their natural food fix. The Alexandre family raises both pasture based dairy cows and egg laying hens in Crescent City, California. The family’s egg laying business began as an FFA project for the kids with 150 birds, but soon grew to be much more. Their farm now boasts nine flocks of 3,500 chickens.

A carton of eggs produced by the Alexandres’ will cost you considerably more than a carton from a large egg producer. However, it seems many U.S. consumers are willing to pay extra to ensure their eggs are free of any chemicals, hormones, or antibiotics, and come from humanely treated hens. Although small natural farms will not likely ever be capable of supplying all of the nation’s egg supply, recent sales hint that they are here to stay for a while.
