We have a couple of friends, one in Otaki, another in Akatawara, from whom we get free-range eggs as a swap for surplus citrus fruit.  They definitely taste a lot better than the caged hen version, so it surprises us that these businesses can get away with such falsehood.  It isn’t confined to eggs, of course, it happens a lot with alleged “organic” fruit and vegetables.

A timely look at the passing off in NZ of cage eggs as free range. Scams abound, people. I personally buy locally produced eggs from the market. Remember corporations think nothing of lying. Watch ‘The Corporation’ movie for proof of that. (Can be found on our Corporations page).
