If you're reading this blog, there is a chance you already raise your own hens for eggs or buy your eggs from a local farmer. But many of you may not. If not, this is for you.
Have you tasted a farm-fresh, free-range egg? It's one of the best things you'll taste. The yolk is bright, in many cases almost orange, and the white is not runny. The taste is far superior; richer. In short, they're very different from the cages, factory-farmed eggs sold dirt cheap in the stores. The same sort of eggs that have been recalled.
A local farmer I know raises healthy chickens for egg production (in addition to grass-fed beef), and she had a great article on her blog today about how the contamination occurred in the factory-farmed eggs, and how small farm egg production differs.
If you'd like to learn, here is a link to her article: http://irishgrove.blogspot.com/2010/09/egg-recall.html
