Join us for our weekly Sound Bites series.  This week, we visited the farm of Carole and Frank Morrison, in Pocomoke City, MD.  If you’ve seen the movie Food, Inc., or listened to our episode taped at screenings of the film, you’re already familiar with Carole.  She and Frank were Perdue chicken growers who decided that they wanted to rework operations on their farm.  They now have a flock of around 550 pastured Rhode Island Red laying hens, and we spoke with them about the process of transitioning into this new mode of farming.  You can read Carole’s blog here.
