How Do Your Eggs Rate?

Recently I came across this Organic Egg Scorecard from the Cornucopia Institute.   They rated egg producers all across the country on a scale of 1-egg (least desirable rating – ethically deficient) to 5-eggs (most desirable – exemplary, beyond organic).   The egg producers were rated based on a variety of criteria, including the chicken’s access to the outdoors, the quality of the indoor space, and their organic ratings and commitment to organic egg production.

In fact, this Scorecard came from an in-depth report Cornucopia completed, entitled “Scrambled Eggs: Separating Factory Farm Egg Production from Authentic Organic Agriculture,” if you’re interested in learning more.

Check out the Scorecard to see how the eggs you buy and eat rate!

Maybe it’s time to upgrade to a better egg?

Or maybe you’re even secretly wishing you could have a couple chickens in your backyard?  Me too!
