This is a follow up to yesterday’s blog about the sad fact that many folks these days don’t even think about where their food comes from when they support policies and agency regulations that hurt American farmers’ and ranchers’ ability to stay in business.
As you will see in this video, these ranchers in Meeker, Colorado and the sheep they raise benefit the public and private lands upon which they graze. They also produce a much sought-after product: according to the video, Whole Foods bought every one of their lambs this year.
I’ll say it again: agriculture’s being dealt a very bad hand by folks who either don’t know any better or have a hidden agenda. Don’t let them get away with it.
Support farming and ranching not only for its place in our heritage, but because of its significant contributions to the land and our everyday lives.
Please forward this video to ten friends and ask them to send it to ten friends and so on… And especially forward it to elected officials and to your “city cousins”. We need their help.
They don’t make lamb chops at the store, you know.
