Inmates get hands-on egg experience at this California farm
The Tulane County Sheriff’s Office posted this video titled “Egg-streme SAVINGS!” Why is it titled that? Well, Sheriff Mike Boudreaux says the office’s farm, with the help of working inmates, has saved taxpayers $100,000 a year off of the food budget.
Currently, there are 2,000 chickens at the farm. The goal is to produce 2,000 eggs a day for the inmate population.
Inmates feed and water the chickens. They collect the eggs, and wash, dry, pack, and transport them to cold storage. In the kitchen, the eggs are boiled and put into breakfast/lunch sacks.
