Locally Laid How We Built A Plucky, Industry-changing Egg Farm--from Scratch By Amundsen, Lucie B. Book - 2016

You've probably heard of little, local farmers selling eggs at the farmers market, and of giant chicken corporations selling eggs to grocery chains and fast-food joints spanning the country. This book is an intriguing look at something in-between, and it suggests that while small might be beautiful for some things, and economies of scale the answer for others, sometimes the sweet spot is right in the middle. It's also an outstanding book to turn to if you are feeling a yearning to go off and become a farmer - the writer was, ahem, definitely not wearing rose-colored glasses.
