Leah Zerbe recently penned an article for Rodale News on what exactly “organic eggs” means:

When you’re frying up those organic, free-range eggs on a Saturday morning, visions of hens running around outside, pecking at bugs and happily clucking about under the sun may come to mind. The reality is, though, most industrial organic-egg producers aren’t creating anything close to those living conditions. As it turns out, organic-egg standards might not live up to your standards.

It’s an informative piece with some very helpful links, so check it out here. For some great egg options in the Madison area, check out my earlier posts on small-flock, soy-free eggs from M&M Organic and pasture-raised eggs from Pasture Patterns.
