    I'd noticed quite a few years ago that the so called "ground beef" didn't cook up or taste like the meat I grew up on. My parents bought their beef (and all of their meats) directly from a butcher. Since I haven't found a butcher in this area I started buying directly from a person that raises clean, pastured, properly fed livestock. I place an order in the spring and in the late fall my freezer is stocked for the year with the best beef in the area. I haven't bought beef from a cahin store in a long time...can't stand the taste of it! Hooray for the smaller/family farmers and their dedication!

    Too bad our schools still use it.

    The federal government has a long history of allowing bizarre and dangerous food additives that eventually are shown to cause any number of cancers or deaths. Makes me wonder where the policy makers buy food for their families.

    Plenty of use for those living large on welfare and their BF's living in prison. Oh, don't forget the poor school districts as well.
