There is a certified organic farm near where we live that produces eggs and sheep. I refuse to buy from them now after my partner did some work out there and told me about the condition of the animals. The sheep looked sick, wormy and had the scours (diarrhea). I have also heard that there is a high mortality rate among the chickens due to over stocking. It might be better for the environment but it isn't doing right by the animals.
I know this isn't the case most of the time, but it proves that it is always a good idea to know exactly where your meat and eggs come from.
