    We love animals, so farming livestock was an easy decision for us. So how can we eat the animals we love? Today, I’ll tell you why PETA is dead wrong and why eating the "right" meat is best for people, the environment AND the animals.
    So, of all the decisions we contemplated when we began farming a decade ago, choosing to farm livestock was the easiest.

    Of course, that meant we would care for livestock, and then eat animals we cared for.

    We spent years hatching cute little chicks, watching Ossabaw Island piglets being born in the woods, pulling calves, collecting and cleaning eggs, and just watching our cows and sheep graze lush pastures.

    We’ve loved farm animals since we took our first steps out of the rat race, and we love everything about them.

    So it seems strange to some folks that we not only eat our animals, but we give them names and develop relationships with them before we do.

    If that doesn’t make sense to you, let me explain why it does to us.

    You see, there were four reasons why the path of raising animals for food was so clearly right for us 10 years ago, and continues to be today.

    Grab some coffee or tea, pull up a chair and listen in as I share why PETA is dead wrong, and why the best decision for the land, the eaters AND the animals, is to eat them.
