Scrambled Eggs

The Cornucopia Institute has done an amazing job of providing organic scorecards on products such as organic eggs, milk and soy.  Their research is in-depth and comprehensive. They are a watch-dog group you can trust.

The Cornucopia Institute will engage in educational activities supporting the ecological principles and economic wisdom underlying sustainable and organic agriculture. Through research and investigations on agricultural issues, The Cornucopia Institute will provide needed information to consumers, family farmers, and the media.

I recently stumbled across their Scrambled Eggs video discussing just how "organic" many of the grocery store organic egg companies really are.  The video is less than five minutes long, but is packed full of information consumers need.

To me, organic is more than just the type of feed you give your livestock.  It's a well known and discussed fact that chickens who are allowed to free-range, the way nature intends for them to live, produce healthier, more nutritious eggs.  And they taste significantly better than store bought, factory eggs.  While we're not 100% free-range yet, we will be by June and that is exciting.
