Lucie Amundsen: Locally Laid

Saturday, May 6th

Lucie Amundsen joins us from Northern Minnesota to discuss her family's pratfall into chicken farming and the surprising hope they found in the mysterious, little known and poorly named segment of "middle agriculture." Lucie, a writer, marketer and reluctant farmer, co-owns Locally Laid Egg Company with her husband. Locally Laid Egg Company is a farm that provides pasture-raised eggs and partners with a total of seven other mid-level producers. These farms source and sell within their own regions to reduce food miles and strengthen local economies. Lucie uses her Masters in Creative Writing to ghostwrite for a chicken in her recent book Locally Laid, 2016 Midwest Choice Award in Nonfiction.

Main Course: Steamed Free-Range Egg over Creamy Polenta with Ragu
