I have just watched the channel 4 programme on trying to get Britain to go free range which I think is fab... Jamie showed examples of intensive farming and culling and free range farming and humane culling but the difference to the nation is the extent of the price!
He has a contract with Salisbury's for advertising of over 1 million squid (pounds) per year... he can afford to buy this type of meat.... I myself do buy free range eggs at a sting to the budget! so after seeing the programme tonight I went onto the asda web site where I do my shopping and the pound extra what Jamie was talking about was a little more!!!! What do I do ... I don't want to eat this crap! but can i really afford any other!.... All boils down to the government AGAIN! being greedy twats ! The farmers of the cheap chicken ...what I buy ( like the buy 2 for 5.00 etc) only earn 3p per chicken...WHAT IS THE POINT! you could clean the subway toilets and make more money! My hubby thinks Jamie is an absolute hypocrite for taking money from Salisbury's when they support this way of farming!! I really give him a little more ( prob cos I am a woman) for trying and getting the point over! I shall try to choose my meat more selectively.......... but this is just the chicken ... what about the poor Piggy, cow and sheep!.......... would cost a fortune to buy it all free range but I want to! Suppose the other option is to go veggie! But really dont want to do that either ! Any comments welcome!
