The average person consumes around 260 eggs each year. And in the United States, most of those eggs come from the Midwest and California. Crop to Cuisine looks into what it takes to keep our food local - and when it comes to eggs - there are lots of options.
In this episode we will be visiting a small family "free range" egg farm. We will also be joined by Kelly Simmons. She is the Director for the Boulder Sustainability Education Center, and teaches people how to care for and raise egg laying hens in household backyards.
