So, what does cage free & free range mean… really need to ask the farmer. Or better yet, visit their farm. Know where your food comes from and how it is raised. Standards of farming are so low in our country that it behooves the consumer to investigate.

The consumer’s understanding of farm fresh, cage free, free range, organic, chemical free, humanely raised, etc, etc may be different than the farmer’s.

But when consumers ask, accountability is provided, and standards are raised. It’s important to be involved – even if you can’t produce on your property, help farmer’s keep the standards high.
