Industry News: The Country Hens Open Their Nests To VIP Guests

 

Hubbardston, MA 01452: The Country Hen, the home of the Original, Organic Omega-3 Egg, was honored to host US Congressman McGovern, MA Senator Gobi, MA Representative Berthiaume, and other VIP guests on Tuesday, August 2, 2016.

Bob Beauregard, General Manager, and Jim Rousseau, Sales Manager, provided guests with a tour of the farm and sites of: The Country Hen’s expansion project and the renewable energy solar project. The
expansion project is located at 7 Williamsville Road in Hubbardston. Upon completion, it will have 3 new
state-of-the art barns and ultimately will increase The Country Hen’s production in Hubbardston by 75%.
When completed, the solar project will provide 100% of the energy needed for the main farm including all
the barns, processing room, and feed mill.

The National Organic Program’s (NOP) proposed rule affecting changes to Animal Welfare in the organic
system was discussed. In 2002, The Country Hen received organic certification utilizing a porch design for outdoor access. Over the past 14 years, organic egg producers have steadily increased their production with this design. During the tour of the porches, guests were given a detailed explanation of the benefits of the porch system. This included the ability to meet FDA egg safety requirements, practical manure management, disease prevention, and the reduction of exposure to predators.

Lastly, there was a discussion of November’s MA ballot question, The Farm Animal Containment Initiative. This would require that all eggs produced and sold in Massachusetts be from cage free production, which is the practice that The Country Hen has implemented since its’ inception.
