(There are many food safety benefits to backyard eggs & dairy – we’ve just listed a few!)

  • Dairy and eggs produced in Concentrated Animal Feed Operations (CAFOs) are extremely vulnerable to food-borne bacteria like E coli and salmonella
  • Backyard food-producing animals can provide a reliably secure (and inflation-proof) source of protein for families
  • An overwhelming percentage of the food Coloradoans consume is grown outside of Colorado. This leaves our residents vulnerable to disruptions in the food system. Food-producing animals can help to reduce the dependence on outside food sources.

Do you know of other food safety & security benefits to ultra-local, pastured dairy and eggs? If so, send us the info and the source!
