I’ll be right up front about this clip: it’s disturbing and it’s hard to watch. And, unfortunately, by many accounts, it’s an accurate representation of what our mass produced food system is really like. That being said — I’ll get more into this after you’ve had a chance to watch the video — it doesn’t have to be this way!
Pretty scary, right?
I know a lot of people will likely use a video like this and point to why we shouldn’t be eating meat. I get that and I can’t fault anyone who thinks that way. But, for me, I use this as continued validation and justification of continuing to pay a little more for meat sourced from local farmers who treat their animals humanely, both during their lives and as they are taking to slaughter. (I know this because I’ve taken the time to talk to them about their practices. It’s amazing what people will tell you if you simply ask the questions.)
