Frozen Moment When One Sees What is on the End of the Fork. Sham Brands, Wright County, Wrong Way to Produce!

How many of you think ONE HUGE DISGUSTING DIRTY CHICKEN FACTORY should be able to sell 338 million eggs under the names "Sunshine" “Mountain Dairy” “Farm Fresh” “Shoreland” “Dutch Farms” "Sun Valley" and "Pacific Coast" ?

William S. Burroughs wrote Naked Lunch, but Jack Kerouac gave him the title, saying "The title means exactly what the words say: naked lunch, a frozen moment when everyone sees what is on the end of every fork." Well folks, it's 50 years later but here is your frozen moment.

Not only does the horrendous poop-filled machine egg factory sell under sham pleasant “happy” brand names, The NY Times reports that Wright County Eggs has “had run - ins with regulators over poor or unsafe working conditions, environmental violations, the harassment of workers, and the hiring of illegal immigrants.”

It’s well past the time to bring back the local farm folks.

  1. If only more people woud read Fast Food Nation or In Defense of Food or watch the movie Food, Inc, I'm convinced they would want to shop locally as much as possible, and eat more healthfully. Sadly, in my experience, lots of people don't WANT to know how their food was raised. It makes me CRAZY! Support your local farmer's markets, people. That's a good start.

  2. Thank you. You know, a number of years ago I had free-range eggs from a small farm on the French side of St. Martin, and I could not BELIEVE how they tasted. They were nothing special, just eggs taken from a nest. What we eat today can barely pass for an egg, and that may be one reason i've virtually stopped eating them. Willie had it right with Farm Aid, but no one listened, and now we have MILLIONS of chickens cooped up in a space they can't turn around in for their entire lives to produce unsafe eggs with no taste. Farmer's Market folks...farmer's market.
