What do you know about the chicken you eat? Two weeks ago, the NY Times' Nick Kristof wrote a devastating takedown of the false advertising on behalf of Perdue. Turns out that "cage-free" means nothing, and most Perdue-contracted operations result in horrific conditions for the chickens.
So we wanted to know: Are there any locally raised chickens that live in much more humane conditions? The answer is: yes, but not many. We've reached out to Wegmans about their standards, too.
