We do need to support local producers and farmers.

Funny this post popping up halfway around the world. I just suggested this on my show as a way of getting people to support local agriculture in the Western US.

This may not be an option soon--the USDA is proposing a Draconian system of Animal Identification Tagging which will drive small farmers into the ground and make hobby farmers a thing of the past. The smallholder will not be able to afford the cost of tagging and monitoring his few animals.

My theory is by adopting a pig, or buying a "cow share" and supporting local producers, now more than ever, we can turn the tables and show the USDA what they should have always known--the small producer is the backbone of the country, providing balance against the corruption of the mega-meat growing corporations.

Meanwhile, I'm ordering chicks this week, and hacking out any place I can on my acre for a few piglets. . . .
