We were talking to our waitress at breakfast this morning at a popular Grass Valley restaurant, telling her about an interesting Mother Jones article we’d just read called “Which Organic Egg Brands Are Factory Farms in Disguise?” The article exposes as factory farms a number of brands that we previously thought of as organic and free-range.
She mentioned that she had also worked at a restaurant in Nevada City, and she said that a lot more customers in Nevada City ask for free-range eggs than do customers in Grass Valley!
Ah, there it is again! Berkeley versus Utah!
Just another data point, but it conforms to the well-known pattern.
We gave her a copy of the article, always hopeful that we can help turn Utah into Berkeley.
