I can bring my experiences growing up on a mixed farm (grains +beef, then later all bison) among people who celebrated what our hard work provided. Hunting, fishing, butchering, preserving via fermenting and smoking provided the bulk of our food to get us through the winter...even to this day!
What saddens me is that so many people have lost touch of where their food comes from even here in Alberta, so close to where the food is raised/grown. They buy things like pre shucked corn in plastic and prefer not to think of how their gorgeous t bone steak dinner was raised and butchered. I think people need to know...the difference between a mass produced feedlot steak and one that came from a cow who was treated with respect. It think if consumers were better informed they could make decisions that make huge differences in the industry.
