From what I have heard regarding Amish meats, go for it.

As for eggs, the deeper the color of the yolk, the better.

Try to visit the farm, meet the farmer, look at his animals. If not possible, just buy your meats from NON Industrial farm sources.

Pigs should be out rooting, chickens out pecking the ground for bugs/grubs, cows all happy eating grass and none of these animals should be eating chemicals, hormones or antibiotics.

I do by local range eggs, but don't worry to much about Omega 3 content as I get that from my beef sources.

Eat some Organ Meats, it does the body good.

Do people buy hearts and eat them? That seems like the king of organ meats.

We buy chicken hearts and liver occasionally. They're quite good and a nice change-up meal from beef, pork, etc. I like to cook them in lots of fat with plenty of seasonings.

The colour of the yolk can be misleading as chickens often have E161i citranaxanthin added to their feed to produce a bright yellow yolk.

You're right, Darryl.

If I was buying eggs from an Amish farmer, I'd pretty much trust that the deeper-colored yolks meant more time in the pasture feeding.

When I see the egg carton at my Trader Joe's that advertises "The eggs with the golden yolk", I make sure NOT to buy those.

Listen to Jay.

And the brighter color in the yolks indicates a higher beta-carotene content (vitamin A precursor).
