Why organic, cage free matters.

Having our own birds, I know how dirty they are and how important it is to keep the coop clean for their health.  My birds are only in their coop at night, so I can only imagine how disgusting a coop with 15,000 birds that live their full-time must be.  What goes in must come out and then we eat it.

I’ve included the scorecard.  I know Eggland Best, Trader Joes, and 365 Organic are big seller here.  They are on the bottom of the list.

    Thank you for posting this info. We thought the 365 brand was the way to go. Not any more. If enough people demanded eggs from the highly rated organic farmers, we could force all of them to raise their standards.

    By the way, we just bought our own chickens (3 Silkies and 6 Ameraucanas) and they are going to have a very good life. Looking forward to some truly organic eggs.
