I've been working with a non-profit that promotes animal welfare and sustainable farming. The website (EthicalAgriculture.Org) officially launches on Jan 1st, but we've just started a Facebook page to help promote what we're doing. Check it out, give us a "like", and please share any posts you agree with and help us get the word out. The page is:https://www.facebook.com/ethicalagriculture A little bit about our goals: We are NOT out to end livestock farming and convert everyone to vegans, that's PETA. We do think that livestock should be raised and slaughtered as humanely as possible. There are already great guidelines for this on animalwelfareapproved.org so there is no need to try to reinvent those. Our goals are consumer awareness, and farmer education and services. One project we'll be working on for 2014 is applying for a grant to build a mobile humane processing unit. If funded, this would provide at cost processing to pastured poultry producers. This would be in SE NC for now, but hopefully we can replicate the model as time progresses. I've been a member here for a few years and I know we can get some great support from you ladies and gents. I'm happy to try to answer any questions I can. I know I don't have all the answers and will surely make some mistakes, but I'm determined to make a difference.
