an inspirational video!- it's great to see people still entering the farming profession (as opposed to abandoning it) thanks for posting!

STOP raise chick­ens, turkeys, ducks and pigs. They also want to live and have the right to a long life.
Love, Peace and Understanding

It's great to hear about farmers who understand and accept that nature knows best. Mankind has continually tried to improve on nature and all it has done is create disaster. When will we learn?
@ Inge Bjorkman - STOP raise chick­ens, turkeys, ducks and pigs. They also want to live and have the right to a long life.
Love, Peace and UNDERSTANDING
If we stopped raising chick­ens, turkeys, ducks and pigs, where would they live?
As the video explains they are an important part of natures plan to keep the land fertile and enable us to grow healthy, 100% nasty free, food. I was raised on a farm and taught to appreciate and respect the animals. I quickly learned that a happy animal was healthier and produced better.
I absolutely abhor cruelty of any kind to any living being.
We had over a thousand turkeys housed in fenced off fields at night, so as they could fertilise them, but every morning we released them into the fields, it was a sight to behold as they streamed out and headed onto the hill side. Every evening they would make their way back into the enclosure and settle down. They were happy and we were happy.
We need them as much as they need us but we need them under the correct conditions and Punkles Farm is doing a great job.
They need our support, not only on sites like this but commercially. If they can't sell their produce they will not survive and that would be a real tragedy.
