Once again… sigh.
I’m lucky enough to have a friend who raises free range chickens. So when I eat eggs, they’re the kind with the deep orange yolks that only come from eating a variety of chicken-chosen goodies. Bugs, weeds- good stuff.
Battery-raised chicken eggs are, IMHO, a (very) poor substitute, and the recent salmonella outbreak makes that only too clear. Just reading the distribution list makes me shudder. 450 MILLION eggs, distributed from two “farms” in Iowa to 14 states?
Rebekah Denn has put together a reading list, if this is your wake-up call and you choose to do something more than moan about the current state of our food supply.
