Your path to a More natural way of life !

It is a travesty what has happened to the meat so many of us eat.   When my grandfather's generation raised beef, the cattle lived a natural life in green pastures.  There were no growth hormones or antibiotics.   Cattle drank from natural ponds and grazed on open pastures unchanged since buffalo herds trod the ground.  Today, most our meat derives from industrial-sized cattle and hog operations.  These are typically crowded, horrendously unsanitary pens where animals stand in manure up to their ankles.  Conditions are so unhealthy that they must be fed a steady dose of antibiotics; the same antibiotics that studies show are giving rise to antibiotic resistant bacteria, which threaten humans today.  If that wasn't bad enough, industrial meat operations give a steady diet of growth hormone to the animals, an unnatural mixture that makes its way into the human food supply with portentous consequences for our children. For farmers and ranchers, there is an alternative model, one wherein we won't poison our children.  Take a look at the links on this page to natural/organic farm information.
