The aftermath of Food Inc continues. I keep hearing from parents on how concerned they are about the food supply in the US. Often they are wondering whether to buy meat and dairy organic and where to shop. Well, I think if you can afford it, it is probably best to buy organic for meat and dairy.
If you have a backyard and want to go a step further you can raise your own chickens to lay eggs. Chefs and folks who have their own fresh laid eggs rave about how yummy the eggs taste when you pick them up in the morning. The Omlet Company provides an eglu to raise your own chickens in your backyard. It is a little pricey at $530 including chickens (does not include Shipping costs).
At $530 cost it can take your family a few years to recoup the cost, but an eglu is something you do because you want to control the food supply and make better quality fresh food. If you have chicken in your backyard, let me know your experience. Having our own chickens is on my to-have list when we have our own house somewhere in the future.
