    I meant 'greed' as in not willing to pay a fair price for a bird that's been reared with some thought to animal welfare, when you can buy a chicken for, sometimes, less than £4 the conditions of 'housing' and feeding must be horrific ... the farmers are greedy, the shops are greedy and the public, as you say, go for price.

    To be fair to General Public, some just cannot afford a "fair price" and have to buy the cheapest option or do without, others are honestly oblivious, not from lack of caring just lack of knowledge

    It's very difficult to prove where meat does or doesn't come from, as regular media exposes over the years have shown. Even though your local butcher might be an honest chap, others in his supply chain might not be.

    There's a simple solution. Buy organic meat and poultry from a box scheme like Abel & Cole or Riverford or direct from organic accredited farms, either click and collect or online delivery. Some local farms around here have their own butchers and though not organic, they are accredited by Farmers into regenerative agriculture are unlikely to practice intensive farming.
