Farmer Boys Now Cooking With 100% Cage-Free Eggs

Farm-To-Table Burger Chain Has Fully Transitioned To Cage-Free California Eggs

March 09, 2017 // Franchising.com // Riverside, Calif. - Farmer Boys® Restaurants, the brand known for cooked-to-order breakfast, burgers and more, announced it completed its transition to cage-free California eggs across its 89 locations in just under one year.

Farmer Boys established a goal in early 2016 for its eggs to be 100% cage-free based on growing consumer support for animal welfare. The swift transition to all cage-free eggs was achieved through close collaboration with Hickman Farms, its long-time egg supplier.

“Our transition to cage-free eggs reinforces our commitment to quality,” said Kristy Foster, vice president of supply chain and research & development. “Farmer Boys will continue to evolve its menu to meet the needs of our customers and provide the tastiest, farm fresh experience.”

The company has been at the forefront of other industry trends including all day breakfast and providing guests an option for hormone-free, antibiotic-free, fresh never frozen beef through its Natural® burger line.

“We commend Farmer Boys for completing its conversion to 100 percent cage-free eggs ahead of schedule,” says Josh Balk, vice president of farm animal protection at The Humane Society of the United States. “This action demonstrates real leadership on animal welfare and is consistent with a philosophy of doing right by your customers.”

Today’s announcement includes shell eggs, hard-boiled, and liquid eggs used in recipes. Farmer Boys has been hand cracking eggs and cooking breakfast to order since 1981. Following the introduction of all day breakfast in 2008, Farmer Boys now hand cracks over 17 million eggs annually.
