    Has that poultry been checked for Marek's disease? Avian Encephalomyelitis? Are they a NPIP certified herd?

    Ok.

    Explain the health hazard. And also, what is the safer, natural alternative to this:

    You're a farmer...I get it. You're defending your turf.

    No I'm not, Joe. You haven't been paying attention. I make my money off of people like you.

    These guys that I'm talking about? They are my competition. I WANT you to continue to believe the way you do. I can't compete with these guys.

    I'm not a drinker usually, but there's just something about an ice cold beer, in an ice cold mug, that makes cooking more appealing.

    You're using organically grown hops, I hope. Otherwise you're going to die in like, 40 years.

    Something I've noticed is that the organic milk seems to stay good (pass the smell test) longer past the sell date than the reg milk. Perhaps they don't extend the sell date out as far?

    Organic milk just means they cannot be given antibiotics and GMO feed. Whether or not that affects milk quality is anybody's guess. There's certainly no science behind it.

    My wife likes to buy organic. I fight about it. She usually wins. The way I see it is, it's just us two now. It's not that much more money and though it's mostly BS, it might possibly be safer or better. I prefer organic fish, deer, and turkey and I keep us stocked up on that.

    I'm about to go get several pounds of organic White Bass. One of my favorites.

    The house we are trying to buy still has a smoke house with a big salt box. It's a lost art. I would have no idea how to raise and process a hog. My grandfather did it and I remember some of it but not much. If we end up at this place I plan to make a go at it.
