Conventional Farmers Won't Eat their Own Produce (VIDEO)
Listen to this farmer on the subject of small farmers vs conventional large producers. Products grown on these small sustainable farms are healthier and better for the environment. Farming factory style is just not healthy for the animals or the plants grown that way. Since we are a product of what we eat, it makes sense that we also will not sustain long term health eating products from mass production. Find a farmer locally that raises chemical free animals on pasture and vegetables in well tended soil free of herbicides and pesticides and join the growing movement towards food sovereignty and food as medicine.

"It used to be if a bird had a severe contamination, you condemned the sucker. But nowadays my own supervising inspector says, 'There can be no more bad birds on your tally. You've had too many.'"
--A seven-year poultry inspector
"The oath I took as an inspector said if I ever saw anything wrong I was supposted to report it. But today I can't report anything. Today, if you blow your whistle, you're in trouble with the inspection service. I feel the oath I took is violated every day I work."
"I would expect an extremely high percentage of the chickens would test positive. Our poultry industry clients wouldn't like that."
--Brian Shelton, Pathogen Control
"I'm ashamed to even let people know I am a USDA inspector. There are thousands of diseased and unwholesome birds going right on down the line."
