I am not a tree hugger, I do not protest the development in the largely rural area where I live, but I would never introduce pesticides or hormones knowingly into my children. I am sure you would not either. It is a serious disservice what the FDA is doing by not publicizing more what goes into the food we eat.
My goal is in the next few years, to be totally organic. No, I am not talking about buying the "so called" organic foods from my local grocery store. I am talking growing my own fruits and veggies, and raising my own beef and chicken. Now, do not get me wrong, I love a burger from McDonald's now and then. Or shall I say I used to?
Then I read up on the practiced they use to process their beef and how inhumane this was. Not to mention I never knew the beef, poultry, and pork I was buying at the local market was pumped full of steriods, antibiotics, and hormones. Whatever happened to doing things the old fashioned way?
These animals are raised in deplorable conditions. They are never allowed to enjoy nature in their short lives, and are not fed any natural grains or grass. Now, I am not telling you to go out and buy a cow and a bunch of birds, I am just saying slow down for a minute and think of what is on your table, and where it came from.
There are tons of organic farms out there, check them out. Most people are not aware of the dangers associated with the additives in our foods today. I was a city girl, now my chickens put eggs on my table, and we enjoy fresh milk from a dairy farm nearby.
In our occupation, we have to disclose anything which may be an issue, shouldn't this information be disclosed to us a bit more, for our health??
HERE IS OUR NEWEST ADDITION AT THE FARM!!
