Where our food comes from
For many years before factory farming and mass production became common, it was easy for consumers to see where food came from. Eggs, dairy, meat and vegetables often grew on nearby farms and usually meat was bought at a local butcher. Today, the majority of people buy food at massive supermarkets(stupidmarkets) because they are seen as convenient. Many butchers, greengrocers, fruiterers and fishmongers have disappeared because even though they usually provide superior food, customers are beguiled by the bright lights and slick advertising of the major retailers. It’s the same with farms, A look at supermarket shelves reveals a vast array of eggs labelled free range – but in reality all those eggs are from intensive farms. To meet the regular volume of eggs demanded by major stupidmarkets, egg producers are required to buy in eggs from around the country. Custoners know they can rely on the quality of Freeranger Eggs which are all laid by hens on our farm.
