This week on the Farm Report we see the return of guest Jesse LaFlamme from Pete and Gerry’s Organic Eggs. Jesse goes in depth about why big agriculture has gone the way it has with sometimes over 600,000 hens being stuffed in cages in a single barn and why he chooses to keep his chickens cage-free and certified humane. Tune in to learn about the life cycle of chickens and their breeding and laying patterns as well as what exactly a pullet egg is. Remember, an egg a day will keep you healthier and happier! This episode is sponsored by S. Wallace Edwards & Sons.
“Everything is mechanical and down to an exact science [now] . . .it takes out the nuances that farmers usually have in terms of the relationship they have with their animals.”
