Somehow going out and picking ripe tomatoes and cucumbers is a bit different than dropping sheep off at a local processor where they’ll spend the night in a stall, surrounded by pigs and then be shot and slaughtered tomorrow. I am sure they will be treated humanely at this processor. It’s a big difference from those companies that process factory farmed animals.
How many times have you passed a tractor trailer truck full of fat white chickens, cattle or pigs? At least these sheep spent the day in the sun grazing on fresh grass and were gently loaded into a large trailer and traveled only a short distance to their destination.
I think I’m going to try to get to the point where I can slaughter and process them at home … but that’s such a big undertaking.
It’s not easy, but I’ll know where my meat is coming from when I eat the lamb.
