Healthy Chickens: Where's the Nutrients?

The Fund's farmer members employ wise animal husbandry practices with the intention of producing nutrient dense foods to their direct sales community.

This includes the common sense practices of giving chickens fresh air, green grass and sunshine. In many cases our members, like Joel Salatin call that "going beyond organic" since, organic standards don't require chickens to be on pastured, but merely have "outdoor access", which could include a porch.

Here's a video from the UK showing the amazing nutritional difference between chickens raised in confinement animal feeding operations (CAFOs), humanely raised chicken and pastured poultry.

Hint - Pastured chicken wins, hands down!
