Egg Me

Happy to see that some local asian grocery stores are selling good eggs that are from free range and organic chickens. I know the egg industry can be bad as a whole. But the key is to make change and progress. If I have to get eggs, I want to do the best I can, knowing I’m only buying from a good company. I thought eggs was a really difficult thing to do. Organic eggs used to cost so much and be so expensive. Then anything you read of free range, cage free, or organic didn’t mean anything. I mean ok cramped in 1 foot diameter cage, but wait he’s cage free stuck with 1000 other chickens and less space than before. Nice trick and false use of the words egg industry.

But I tried to do as much research as possible. And Nature’s Yoke never popped up negatively for me. I see on there website and egg cartons they promote this healthy and free chicken as much as possible. But they seem to be telling the truth. They are going above USDA standards. And even though they cost more, they are still a good price for what are getting. And you definitely see its working when they are flying off the shelves. I went to some grocery stores in Annandale and Falls Church and see them there and almost gone all the time. If its one thing about Asians, they like a good bargain. And the fact they buy it shows they care and if you make it a simple economic choice for them. They will do it.

I saw this rating on Cornucopia Institute website. “The Cornucopia Institute, through research and investigations on agricultural and food issues, provides needed information to family farmers, consumers and other stakeholders in the good food movement and to the media. We support economic justice for the family-scale farming community – partnered with consumers – backing ecologically produced local, organic and authentic food.”
