I’ve heard lots of people recently worrying about food. They’re concerned about where their food comes from, how the animals are handled, what kinds of chemicals are sprayed on the plants, and what happens after the food leaves the farm.
These are all valid concerns, and I have had some of them myself. I’m a large animal veterinarian, and I’m a cattle farmer, and I still don’t know all there is to know. I’ve learned a lot in the last couple of years, and I know I have a lot more to go.
To help myself, and to help you, I’ve started another blog to deal with these kinds of worries. As of today, I will also be blogging at AgriCultured. AgriCultured will be focusing on food, farming, and food production.
I know there are tons of places to look up information about food on the internet, but this will be different. Instead of having to go to one place to find out about beef, somewhere else to learn about pork, and somewhere else to learn something about corn, it’s going to all be in one place on AgriCultured.
I am not going to try to convince anyone that their food choices are “right” or “wrong.” My goal is to present information about how food is made, and let you make your own decisions about which food you choose to (or not to) purchase. I am going to do my best to be objective.
Please be patient with me as I build that site. There will likely be a bunch of changes to the look and feel of the site over the next couple of months as I get in my groove. And the content library is going to be building all the time. I’m going to start off talking about beef (after all, I am a beef cattle farmer!), but I’ll get into other topics soon. It is a blog – a place for me to post an article, and a place for you to leave comments and ask questions. Please ask questions! You’ll help me know what you are wondering about, and that will help me to post helpful articles. You can also find AgriCultured on Facebook, Twitter, and Google+. I would love to meet you and interact with you on those sites as well.
