Orren Fox, The Happy Chickens Blog, Newburyport, MA
http://happychickenslayhealthyeggs.blogspot.com/

Orren Fox is a 15-year-old chicken farmer, bee keeper, foodie, and popular blogger. He has been raising chickens outside of Boston since the 4th grade and currently has over 32 heritage breed hens, four ducks, and four bee hives. A school project on factory farming in the 5th grade led him to his current motto that happy chickens lay healthy eggs, and the amount of interest his classmates exhibited in a chicken he brought to class led him to creating his blog of the same name: Happy Chickens Lay Healthy Eggs. He’s recently expanded that interest at his school by starting “Farm Club” which quickly became a popular extracurricular activity. They grow vegetables and visit Orren’s chickens to learn more about what they eat. He sells his eggs under the name “O’s Eggs” and last year began keeping the bee hives which produce his “Bee Happy Honey”. Orren says we can learn a lot from the way bees work together and believes that if we each do even just one small thing, it can have a huge impact.
