Asking your grocer or server for sustainably raised, antibiotic and hormone free meats is good for you, your family, and the environment.

Can I really make change?
Yes, in many important ways, by asking for change and selecting sustainable meats to eat, you will immediately remove antibiotics and hormones from the daily diet of you and your family. Moreover, a greater part of each dollar you spend goes directly to a farmer practicing responsible land stewardship, raising healthy animals treated with respect throughout their lives. The alternative is too dangerous to consider...massive animal factories polluting the food we eat and the environment.

When you say "sustainable," what do you mean?
Sustainable animal agriculture is achieved today by family farmers who recognize and protect the environment and waterways, treat all animals with respect and are committed to both their welfare and the welfare of those who work on the farm. By raising animals within the carrying capacity of the land, providing their natural vegetarian diets, without feeding them antibiotics or hormones, everyone will benefit from a safer, healthier diet and environment.

Are you saying to only buy meat certified Organic?
No. Organic meat is often a great option, but the organic certification itself can only designate some qualities of sustainability.

Should I really be concerned about the hormones and antibiotics from conventional factory farms?
There are numerous concerns with the use of hormones and routine antibiotics leaving residues in the meat we eat. There are real health consequences. Medical professionals and hospitals like Kaiser Permanente are increasingly concerned about the regular consumption of conventional meats, leading to antibiotic resistance, and other developmental health problems. You can find out more about the concern in the medical community by visiting Health Care Without Harm.
