Apparently, eating organic is not “kind” enough — we must go farther!
That’s why Stephanie Dohar and Greg Litus decided it was high time they just go out and farm for themselves! As vegans, they finally realized that even if they were eating vegetables, those veggies were probably grown using animal byproducts. So, they got themselves a plot of land and decided to start farming it up!
But this is a special farm. Not only do Stephanie and Greg “rescue” farm animals and bring them to them to live (they currently have around 300 of such animals), they also refuse to use any animal byproducts on the veggies.
Including animal crap.
That’s right. The pair even refuse to use any animal waste as fertilizer. I guess they don’t want to offend the animals?
The farm’s goal and mission is to be a model for agriculture that is not only “moral,” but also “kind” to the Earth and the animals.
Look, I’m glad these two have a fun hobby that makes them feel as though they’re making a difference in the world (ok, I couldn’t really care less), however, the rest of us in the agricultural community are going to go back to the real world now.
You know, that place where you have to produce enough food to feed the world’s population. The place where animals don’t get offended that you use their manure as fertilizer. The place where we have a circle of life, and meat is an important part of any diet. The place where morality isn’t defined by some random notions of kindness that you decide to adopt. The place where people have to make a living in order to feed their children.
The place where the rest of the world lives.
