Free Range Cashmere

Duh, Ashley. 

I remember seeing this LA Country Fair video a couple years ago, but I recently stumbled across another one, which is pretty funny too.

Now, I don't want to make fun of anyone that doesn't know the difference between a cow and a sheep because in some way I feel like ranchers and farmers are a little to blame for the disconnect. I think at some point we forgot that there are millions of people that have never stepped foot on a farm, and we are going to have to make ourselves available to answer their questions.

On the other hand, I think consumers need to take a little more interest in their food choices. Children need to be shown that food doesn't come from a grocery store, rather the fields that surround their cities. Food doesn't come from a package, it comes from soil and animals. So consumers, I challenge you as well. If you have questions, do be shy. Farmers LOVE talking about their livelihoods and will be more than willing to share.

  3. I hadn't seen that before, that's awesome!

    In a way it kind of reminds me of one of my clients (definitely a hippie client) and their claim to producing "non-violent linen"...

  4. My recommendation? Either talk directly to the buyer (person cooking at home) or, if you really want to make an impact, talk with the retailer and distributors and processors who buy raw materials from you and process/sell them in a different form. What % of food sold to the end buyer comes directly from a farm? Is it any wonder that there's confusion?

  5. Love it, the clip reminds me of one time (at the Sydney Royal Easter Show)when I saw a mother explaining to her children and friends that the Braham Bull was a Camel because it had a hump......
