INDUSTRIAL FARMING

 

Industrial Farming – Crops


Because of urbanization of cities, farmlands concentrate in rural areas and people have to purchase veggies from supermarkets and retail stores instead of growing them themselves or purchasing directly from farmers’ markets near where they live. To feed livestock and people, to minimize costs and to achieve highest-possible yields, spraying chemical pesticides, herbicides, etc. onto the crops is an industry-wide daily practice. These toxic chemicals have polluted the soil, the waterways, the air, the crops themselves and threatened the health and lives of the farmers as well as the consumers. That is why many people built their own farms and chose to grow veggies organically. And some went on to pursue permaculture practices.

 

 

Industrial Farming – Animals

 

To meet 7+ billion people’s demand for meat products every day globally, the animal farming industry has to breed and rear livestock in extremely packed factories with very unfavorable conditions. To prevent the reared animals getting sick and spreading disease, as well as speeding up their growth for greater turnovers, antibiotics and growth hormones, among other medications, are dosed to the animals shamelessly in these factories. Such practice is not often talked about by the mainstream media.

Wonder why people are getting weaker and weaker these days? Imagine that they consume animal products produced this way daily? It is not difficult to understand why.

 

If you had to slaughter the cow, the pig or chicken that you are going to eat today yourself, would you be able to pick-up the knife (or whatever tool that is) to kill it yourself and cook it, put it on to the plate and eat it? Or you simply feel good by paying somebody else to do it for you?

Why are we treating different kinds of animals differently?

 

We are not completely against eating animal meat, but we very much want you to open your eyes and hearts to look at what is actually going on with the animal farming industry in the world today (and in the past). We support family-scale animal farming, especially in colder regions where consuming plants is not enough to sustain live, and we also understand that small-scale animal farming is essential in many small communities worldwide. In most parts of the world today, however, plant-based diets are highly accessible and beneficial to human health as well. We encourage everyone to look at the possibility of cutting down animal meat consumption and reducing animal suffering.
