Shawn Harman grew up on the family farm in Saskatchewan. He is now the third generation of Harmans to produce fresh Canadian eggs.
Egg farming is a family affair for the Harmans. Shawn’s dad Bert and his sister Dana Haynes are both involved in the family business, which includes the production of various specialty eggs.
Omega-3 eggs provide an additional source of omega-3 fatty acids. To produce these eggs, some hens are fed a diet that includes flaxseed, as flaxseed contains omega-3 fatty acids. Other hens have vitamin D added to their feed, and they lay eggs with a higher level of this vitamin.
“We’re proud to provide options for Canadians, but no matter which type of egg they choose, they’re getting a high-quality, low-cost food with great nutritional value,” Shawn explains.
