meat and food with an acknowledged spirit
I am feeling like I need to explain something, as a former vegan. Well, actually I am still vegan when i leave my farm, if I don’t know the animals the products came from. Anyhow- I am not here trying to convert ANYONE to anything. Vegans rule!
I really appreciate what they choose, cuz I am still on board with not partaking in miserable factory-farmed animals’ products.
We all get to draw our own lines, but what worries me about some of the vegans I have encountered, is the non-acceptance of others’ choices. It is actually reminiscent of some religious organizations I have encountered in my past. My sister (a vegan) who won’t even talk to me anymore because she is so angry I am eating my own animals. It is either I go her way, or nothing, no relationship at all.
I am choosing to raise animals for their bountious giving back, and I really enjoy caring for them. My animals living great, happy lives, makes me SO glad! This is one less factory farmed turkey, pig or duck. I also raise animals to eat them, because I really love to eat meat, but everything that leads up to their (the average meat animal) death, and their death itself, was why i WAS vegan. But that is EXACTLY what i can change on my farm. I can make sure they live the BEST life possible before they are eaten, and I can make sure they have a serene, respectful death at my hands. I CAN DO THAT. And that is why i am doing it! I hope this makes sense to you, as a reader. I don’t expect everyone to agree with or respect what I do, but for me, I feel proud of, and honored by the animals who lives I get to care for and enjoy with them.
ps I am loading some awesome videos onto facebook….find me there under L.T.D. Farm LLC —–pigs galloping around with me, pigs in love with the cat, the new ducklings just out of the incubator…..
