Eating Locally Raised Meat
National CSA Directory April 26, 2019
I’d like to answer some questions about eating farm-raised meat. I have a lot of insight into local meat and where to find organic meat farms near me. I started a web site called National CSA Directory As I became more involved in the local food and farming culture, I began to eat meat raised by local farmers. That is an option that many people do not have. Thankfully with the local food movement growing annually, local synthetic free meat is more accessible than ever.
While organic meat does offer some health and environmental benefits over factory farming in regards to the residue, waste management, pesticides, fertilizers, and herbicides, the animals do not consume fewer resources or produce less waste. The best way to know your meat is humane is to develop a relationship with a producer. Be it for cattle, chickens, hogs, etc. eating locally is better than eating food that has to be transported cross country or imported from another country.
Raising animals organically does not reduce the amount of food or water required to produce meat. The animals will produce just as much waste. We hear that one way to be eco-friendly is to eat locally. This reduces the number of resources required to get food to our homes. So where are the organic meat farms near me?
