Ohio is one of the leading states in egg production, with more than 33 million laying hens, which produce about 9 billion eggs each year. Trillium’s hens produce about 3.3 billion eggs annually – that’s more than one-third of Ohio’s total annual egg production!

Eggs are an excellent source of vitamins, minerals and nutrients. One large egg contains 6 grams of high-quality protein, nine essential amino acids, and zero carbs or sugars, all for only 70 calories. Nutrients from eggs help to sustain mental and physical energy throughout the day, curb hunger and aid in normal cell and organ function.

Because eggs are an extremely versatile food, they can be prepared and used in a variety of ways. Egg farmers work hard every day to ensure that the eggs they produce are wholesome and safe.
