One of my loyal customers recently sent me this article;
It verifies some things I had learned from other sources. Our kids and grandkids get as much as a quarter of their diet at school. Can any of you remember real home cooking at school lunch? I can, but I’m pretty old. You will have to decide how to handle this issue, but I know when the kids come to my house they have clean, home grown meat, fruit, and vegetables to choose from. Unfortunately, we still have a sugar addiction problem. We need to work on that one.
Some of you know we also run greenhouses. This time of year some of them are full of vine ripe tomatoes that taste like a tomato should taste. We do monitor what is available at the grocery store and this fall we have been appalled to find out where the store tomatoes come from. Thanks to the USDA for finally requiring country of origin labeling. Even during the height of tomato season here in our area, almost all tomatoes in grocery stores are coming in from Mexico. There are a few hothouse hydroponic tomatoes coming from Canada. The only domestic tomatoes I could find in the displays of the major grocery stores come from a huge hydroponic facility in Arizona. Some of our small local grocers have had half bushel tomatoes from Utah. Where will our food come from when the trucks can’t run for a few days?
Please….support your local (and I mean LOCAL) farmers.
Well Folks, it has been 2 years this month since we launched Bradys Beef. The website is not quite that old yet and my blogging has been pathetic. What we have concentrated on is producing the BEST beef product in the country. Karen and I are pretty happy with the results of that focus. We eat our beef every week and still comment on what great flavor it has. We cannot eat beef at a fast food joint any more. That stuff is pathetic. There is no comparison to great, clean, grass fed beef! This is not even mentioning the great health benefits of grass fed.
An added Plus is how great it is for the animals. Look at our pictures. The cows love this kind of salad bar.
