Commercial Scale Pasture-Raised Eggs

Recently, the Grand Rapids Area Library held a program about the first commercial scale pasture-raised egg company in the Upper Midwest. “Locally Laid,” is the name of the company, and also the book written by Lucie Amundsen about her adventures starting the company with her husband. During her presentation, Lucie read excerpts from the book and showed pictures detailing some of the highlights of her entertaining, and educational, adventure into the world of chickens.
