Pasture Raised vs. Cage Free
We are largely disconnected from the food we eat. Despite the pastoral narratives our egg cartons depict, the real story behind our eggs is probably much different.
Alexis Koefoed of Soul Food Farm perfers to say that her chickens are "pastured" instead of "free range" because there is imprecision used to describe how chickens are raised. The term "cage free," for example, could be used to mean poultry raised indoors with little or no access to outdoors.
Alexis treats her chickens with love and a real respect for their gifts of eggs and meat. They are raised humanely and given all the room they need outside to be what they really are and, in return, give us the best of what they are.
