Sustainable hog farming stages a comeback

It is great to see that bigger is not always better.

The story old-school hog farming stages a comeback, about Russ Kremer and the Ozark Mountain Pork co-operative, is a fabulous demonstration that quality and sustainable agriculture can succeed and overcome the mindset that bigger and “more efficient” is always the best.

I don’t think that it is difficult to argue that higher quality and better tasting food can be made by using more humane and caring practices. The question is are people willing to pay more for better tasting food and for food that is produced or grown using more sustainable methods?

Are you willing to pay more for items such as free range chickens and eggs or for organic foods?
