Radical Notions

Up until the last hundred years (approximately), all/most:

Milk went straight from the cow to being used for butter, cheese, yogurt, etc (raw milk)

Produce was never treated with pesticides & other chemicals (organic)

Produce & Animals were of the heirloom or hybrid varieties (non-GMO)

Animals were kept on pasture as long as it was seasonally available (grass fed meat)

Eggs & Chicken came from hens who moved about freely, ate bugs, & scratched in the dirt (free range)

Food came from a nearby farmer, butcher, or your own backyard (local, self-sufficient)

Food was grown by farmers who rotated crops & the pastures used for grazing, grew a variety of items, etc. (sustainable)

______________________________________________________

These things aren’t new; they’re much older than the recent changes brought on by the Industrial Age. We really screwed up when we prioritized convenience and easy over quality and sustainability.

Remind me again why I’m crazy and radical for wanting the same things?

local is growing
