Lagom Food. Lagom Philosophy.

You sound very much like some local farmers I know in this beautiful region. It is a privilege to be able to support intelligent and caring farmers. I would like to see the homekill become commercially viable, and I think we might see more of that in the future if the success of free-range chicken and eggs is an indicator.

Real improvements to animal welfare and ecology (and also meat-handling workers working conditions!) can’t happen without the active participation of livestock farmers and animal product consumers. Vegetarian zealotry is at best, irrelevant and at worst, a major obstacle to positive changes.
