In this month’s Acres U.S.A. publication, that arrived today, I read a lot about pastured chickens versus free range chickens, and learned about the organization that is keeping watch over our supposedly organic farms.  It seems, many of the small farms are getting bought up by major businesses, and the “Organic” classification is being muddled.  Here is a good video by The Cornucopia Institute, called Scrambled Eggs: Separating Factory Farm Egg Production from Authentic Organic Agriculture, October 2010.

More good reasons to know your chicken farmer.
