THE BIG QUESTION interview by IAN ALDRICH We ask 14-year-old chicken farmer Orren Fox … HOW DO YOU MAKE A real HAPPY MEAL? ORREN FOX IS A LOT OF THINGS. HE'S A CHICKEN FARMER, BEE- KEEPER, STAUNCH FOODIE, AND AVID CELTICS FAN. HE'S ALSO A BLOGGER WITH A LARGE FOLLOWING. AND, OH YEAH, HE'S ONLY A FRESHMAN IN HIGH SCHOOL. SINCE GETTING HIS FIRST CHICKENS FIVE YEARS AGO, THE 14-YEAR-OLD VEGETARIAN HAS IMMERSED HIMSELF IN THE ISSUES SURROUND- ING NOT JUST WHAT WE EAT BUT HOW OUR FOOD IS MADE. HAPPY CHICKENS, ORREN LIKES TO SAY, LAY HEALTHY EGGS. HE'S TAKEN HIS MESSAGE TO NPR'S AIRWAVES AND SERVES ON THE ADVISORY BOARD OF BOSTON-BASED CHOPCHOP MAGAZINE, A FAMILY COOKING PUBLICATION. WE VISITED ORREN (AND HIS CHICKENS, DUCKS, AND BEES) AT HIS HOME IN NEWBURYPORT, MASSACHUSETTS. photographs by WILLIAM HUBER 94 | YANKEEMAGAZINE.COM
