Carole Morison, Industrial Chicken Farmer From 'Food, Inc.' Switches To Sustainable Farming

Posted: Updated:

Remember Carole Morison from the documentary "Food, Inc."? She was the chicken farmer under contract with Perdue, the country's third largest chicken processor, who offered a rare look at what an industrial chicken farm looks like. The chickens barely had room to move, and many died daily due to the conditions and their accelerated breeding. She was tired of it -- by agreeing to participate in the film, Morison put her livelihood in jeopardy. Perdue terminated her contract in 2008 after she refused to entirely enclose her chicken houses.

After her farm went barren for three years, Morison and her husband decided to give another go at farming, but this time giving the chickens room to walk.

She's a big fan of her new sustainable farm and thinks its the way that farming needs to head. And, it seems like a better fit for her as well. She told Flavor magazine that Big Chicken was "was never happy with my big mouth."

Watch Carole explain her new farm:
