When we first began to sell organic chicken, it was a task to persuade people that the price was worth paying for the quality and the labour involved. At this moment in time, we cannot provide the supply to meet the demand for the nutrient dense fowl. For many families organic eggs and chicken are a lifeline of nourishment in the maze of food intolerances and sickly children. We hear stories from grateful parents who have found these foods provide the answer for regular nourishment. Freely roaming hens that scratch the ground and feed off the biodiverse insects and bugs to provide complete meals of nutrient rich eggs.
From what I can gather the availability of poultry and eggs will be more curtailed in future as the squeeze is on farmers to change their practices under the guise of animal welfare. Lockdown for humans in recent years was in the guise of public health and we can argue how damaging that was for many other reasons but I digress. What is going on? We know the visionaries want us to eat bugs. It would seem they are reducing the middlemen (hen) so that we can do just that!
We fought to save the right to consume raw milk in Ireland not so long ago. Food is the new bioweapon. Chicken, Eggs, and Beef are in the spotlight. In an era when Ultra Processed Food is recognised for its toxicity, a point is made of demonizing these real foods through regulation and climate shame. Be wary though of those determined mothers who have found how real food has healed their families. Take those foods away at your peril.
