Did you know this?Category: Cows
Author: 5 Chicks and a Farmer
This is disturbing on many different levels. I saw this Wall Street Journal video on a fellow farmer's blog and felt the need to share it with you.
Although, I do disagree with one point from the video. The grass-fed farmer says that,"We are working with a zero market or margin" in regards to those seeking out grass-fed meats.
This just isn't the case. More and more consumers are educating themselves on what they are putting in their mouths. And my guess is that the rising prices of meat all together will cause even more people to question their food.
The reality is that grass-fed farms are on the rise across the nation and can't keep up with the demand of consumers. Grass-fed meat really is superior in health, quality, taste, and land management. There is no question about that. And small farms like us, desire to offer healthy and naturally raised alternatives to the madness thats clearly getting out of hand to the point to where we are now feeding cows M&Ms.
This most definitely is not to guilt anyone into buying grass-fed meats. The LEMON POST proved that people are going to consume what they desire to consume.
However, I do believe that it never hurts to be educated on the stuff we are putting into our bodies.
