"Ten years ago, Blake and Stephanie Alexandre bought their kids 150 hens. The couple, who run a dairy business in Northern California, wanted to teach the children business principles and instill values like responsibility and care for nature. The pastured egg business, which on their farm means hens are allowed to spend much of the day in open pasture, has since become the mainstay of Alexandre Family EcoDairy Farms. This year, their 9 chicken flocks, each typically about 3,500 birds, will produce roughly 5 million eggs, commanding prices that make organic milk look cheap. @fremson captured some of the #chickens drinking water while on #nytassignment. #🐣" By nytimes on Instagram.
