Most of the general population is blissfuly unaware of where their food comes from and for good reason – the conditions are anything from special. No one wants to talk about the terrible confined living conditions of an animal that is basically dying to provide a meal for you. Factory farms are pretty much the most economic way to raise meats for sale to the general consumer. As a part time vegetarian, I only eat meat once every few months but my meat needs to come from either an organic institution or a homesteader. But what is homesteading?
I went off the beaten travel path and visited a homestead in rural North Carolina, USA to find out more about what it takes to be a homesteader.
And also for your viewing pleasure, I added a bonus extra of GobblePro – a day in the life of a turkey.
