Where does your food come from?

Stores are full of beautiful, ripe, fresh fruit and vegetables. Loaded with delicious, nutritious meats and dairy products. And lets not forget about the wholesome grains. But all of this life-sustaining food doesn’t come from the store; it’s just sold there. Our food comes from hard-working men and women, that get up every day to provide us with this safe, nutritious food.

Since our food doesn’t come from “the store,” why is it that too many people seem to think its ok to choose a teeny fish over pumping necessary water for the crops? Why is it ok to destroy farm ground to build a train that will more than likely cost CA a small fortune and will never be completed? Why is it ok to destroy family businesses for this same train to nowhere? Where will our food come from if the ground is gone? Where will our food come from if regulations get so cumbersome and costly that no one can afford to farm? The US has the safest food supply in the World!

Here are two recent articles worth checking out:
