How many of you have watched the movie Food, Inc?
How many of you actually believe it?
As farmers, we want you to know that we care about our animals and the land. We make our livelihood from them so we do what we can to protect them. In order for us to have a job, and you to have food on the table, we must treat our land and animals with respect and make sure they are healthy and happy. It sounds weird right? Keeping our land healthy and happy? But its true. We help our land with added nutrients. We make sure that we keep detailed maps every year on our land to figure out what it needs most. We take soil samples. We plant wind breaks. We use strip till and plant buffers. We use water management resources. We do everything we can to make sure that our land is healthy, and as I said, what we like to think of as happy.
We provide for it, because it provides for us.
I am including this LINK to an article that debunks a lot of what is said in Food, Inc. or explains it fully because when only one side is heard, we aren’t being informed consumers. And when it comes down to it, we should all know what is really happening.
Take it from a farmer who knows. Take it from me.
