Good news for everyone who's been wishing to be able to buy organic chicken. After 10 years without domestic organic production of chicken in Finland, we are finally getting a producer willing to take the chance.
According to Yle Morning news Studio, we are getting some organic chicken in the market this autumn. Unfortunately first it's only available around Tampere, but I'm hoping the demand is big enough for the producers are able to broaden the coverage.
Here's a piece of news on Aamulehti some time ago about the production: http://www.aamulehti.fi/Pirkanmaa/1194692491401/artikkeli/suomen+ensimmainen+luomubroileri+kasvaa+pirkanmaalla.html
