Label for packaged eggs in the Netherlands

I picked up a package of eggs for my Oma (‘grandmother’ in Dutch) today. First off, the egg carton was made of coconut husk. Then on the label there is a picture explanation of the farm where the eggs are coming from. I think it is an interesting use of graphic design to illustrate an ‘organic farm’ in the Netherlands. After doing some translation work on the label, these words are bolded: prettiger leven (pleasant life),natuurlijke behoeften (natural needs), beschutte bosrand (protected forest), zandbad (sandbath?(yikes)), verse mais en granen (fresh corn and grain), groed (well), eerlijk (fair).
