I swear people think that food has ALWAYS come from a freakin' grocery store! More people than not look at me like I'm nuts when I tell them we have chickens. What the heck is wrong with eating responsibly... do they not realize or care about the conditions layers are kept in commercially or even meat birds for that matter? It frustrates me to no end that so many people have strayed from the roots of our country and I LOVE that homesteading is finally making a comeback. It is soooo frustrating. Oh, and I've had some snide comments from my SIL... and she is the one who raised her child to 3 yrs old w/o ever giving him fresh fruit - only canned. I handed him a pear when he was at my house and he had no clue what it was.
