Do you know where your last chicken came from?
If it was free-range then breathe a sigh of relief. But if it was a supermarket bird then you might want to reconsider your dining options in the future.
I write this after spending the last couple of evenings watching a UK TV show – Hugh’s Chicken Run – presented by River Cottage chef Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall detailing the horrors of modern broiler chicken farming.
The goal of the campaign is to change how Brits eat chicken – specifically by urging the major supermarket chains to only stock free range birds.
Trust me, one look at how these industrially-reared chickens are raised and you’ll never eat non-free range again.
