Gustavus Dining Service has committed to prepare and serve only Cage Free eggs beginning in September 2010. The eggs will come from Minnesota and Wisconsin farms and are American Humane Certified. This means the farms follow strict guidelines in the care and well being of the laying hens. The hens are kept in an environment free of any type of cage system which provides them with room to engage in their natural behaviors. Humane Certified

Finding a source for cracked and stirred liquid whole eggs has been an ongoing consideration and project for many years and we are proud to partner with farmers who support humane farming methods. While not exactly a vision of ‘Old MacDonald’s Farm’, large cage free egg production operations are just that…large production operations…..however, American Humane Certified is significant and is movement in a direction the Gustavus dining community has expressed interest in supporting.
