There is a lot of attention these days regarding genetically modified foods, which is great, but we must not let it distract us from the bigger issue which is the chemical/synthetic form of agriculture that has become predominant over the last century. There is much concern with the unintended consequences that may result from genetic engineering but what is actually more concerning is what is directly sprayed on the crops and soil because these end up in our food either dire
When it comes to ruminants (cows and sheep) we feed strictly 100% Certified Organic Pasture, Certified Organic Hay (winter) and some supplemental Certified Organic Alfalfa. We feed absolutely ZERO grain or silage because these animals have a completely different digestive system than monogastric (single chambered stomach) animals such as chickens and pigs. In nature, you will not find herbivores eating grain. They may consume some seed heads of the pasture species but this “g

The evidence presented in this report shows that the opposite is true. GMO Truths and Myths is a free downloadable report that is co-authored by genetic engineers Dr. John

But when we shop at an organic grocery store or see people buying organic at the market, it seems to be mostly common middle income folk not rich people.
