Buy it from your local farmer

In wake of the WalMart LSD-laced steak episode, I ask you: Isn’t it time we stopped buying meat at the grocery store and bought it directly from local farmers? (of course you urbanites will have to settle for mystery meat, it comes with living in a city…unless you find a way to get it from a real farm). I am looking up that number I saw in the local classified tabloid- time to buy some grass-eating steak.

I mean, I would rather trust the farmer than a meat packer making minimum wage at a part time job…so he or she can buy more drugs…

    I am totally in agreement, as much as possible get your food from local resources. I like our three seasons of Farmer’s Market days on Wed. and Sat. in my small town, also we have a community market that is a shop that features local foods, delicious baked goods and cheeses, too. Great way to get people motivated to shop local! Robin

    I hadn’t even heard of this incident. Glad that didn’t happen to me when I bought a steak from Wally World!!! I will have to look into buying local…not sure we have much down here.
