conditions at the farms were found to be terrible.
One change I have already made this summer goes along with Pollan's rule #15. "Get out of the supermarket whenever you can." I have been shopping at farmer's markets all summer. You can't get everything there and I don't try. But I get fresh locally grown produce and sometimes farm-fresh eggs. You can also find farms that sell eggs. Or I will buy organic eggs at the grocery store. I like Eggland's Best Eggs- they often have coupons in the newspaper. Yes, they are more expensive. I will pay about $3.00 a dozen for farm-fresh eggs. When you crack them open, the yolks are orange-yellow not pale like the grocery store eggs. That's because they are full of beta-carotene. My daughter says it's because the chickens ate their vegetables!
Do you eat local farm eggs? Where do you get them?
