Lately we have been reading a lot about the conditions under which animals are raised. This is an issue which many urban consumers do not like to dwell on because our mental image of cute lambs running around on green fields collides with the reality that this going to be on a plate, maybe our plate , one day. While that is a reality, that is no indicator of how the animals are raised. Farmers raise their animals with care no matter what their purpose, here is an account from a farmer about the reality of raising animals and how her children are learning about it as well.
