Well if that heading didn’t get your attention I don’t know what would! You can thank food and agriculture blogger Tom Philpott of Mother Jones for that one. It sure got my attention when I read it!
Folks, if you eat conventional eggs, if you buy those attractively priced super market pre-cooked chickens, if you can’t resist packages of perfectly neat and trimmed chicken breasts – then the source is guaranteed to trace back to some place resembling what you see pictured above. That is the face of poultry farming today and may as well be the poster child for Industrial Farming, Factory Farming or “Big Ag” as its often referred to nowadays.
