Hilltribe Organics in Thailand: The good egg

Hilltribe Organics in Thailand: The good egg | Inclusive Business in Asia | Scoop.it
In the remote village of Baan Huai Nam Yen, in Chiang Rai, many hill tribe farmers are doing their best to take care of their chickens. They have built coops far from the community and roads to ensure that their fowl live in peace. They feed the chicken with clean rice grains, beans and even insects. After meals, the chickens are allowed to roam freely around fruit plantations, grazing for food and stretching their legs before their next mealtime.
Markus Dietrich's insight:
