Buy Meat from Veterinarians
Nov 01, 2015 10:43AM
The new DFW Know Your Food ranch that opened November 1, near DFW airport, is comprised of veterinarians that produce food in the safest manner possible as stewards of the land. They link the consumer to the food and the land by making them the owner of the process and the end product. At Know Your Food, consumers are able to buy a cow and board it the ranch and then get their beef every year from the offspring of the cow they have purchased. They also offer chicken, lamb and turkey in this same manner.
Veterinarians are historically the gatekeepers of food safety. Over the years, that vocation has been replaced with pet keepers and animal health husbandry. In the military, the veterinary corps enters a country on the front lines to find safe food sources for troops before they enter the area.
Farmers have traditionally been the stewards of the land, raising crops and keeping animals. Over time, this has evolved to focus on raising food but not taking care of the land, and has also separated the animals from the land. We eat chickens that never see sunlight and cattle that hardly touch grass.
