Free-range eggs can be pricey. Unfortunately, you may not be getting what you expect. The USDA allows producers to use the term “free-range” if their hens are uncaged with access to the outdoors. But there are no criteria for the type of access or the length of time outdoors. Chickens with even just a few minutes outside on a concrete slab can qualify. Get your eggs directly from a local farmer to be sure.
