Why Farmers Should Stop Bashing Chipotle

I’ve long been an advocate of calling out Chipotle Mexican Grill on their BS. Their Food With Integrity marketing campaigns have lacked integrity and perpetuated lies about hard-working American farm and ranch families. Chipotle has spent years building up their brand as being superior to conventional food systems, while their ideal (sustainable, organic, non-GMO) foods have […]

Chipotle And Cancer – Will They Remove Beef and Pork?

Some days, I feel exhausted when it comes to Chipotle Mexican Grill and their lack of integrity in marketing and lack of support for modern family farming and ranching.

Response to Subway Antibiotic Free Meat

News that Subway will soon be serving protein from animals never receiving antibiotics hit the waves in a big way this week.

Inflaming this situation was the fact that they continued to delete comments from their social media feeds from individuals […]

Subway Removing Antibiotics… And Facebook Comments

Subway announced on Tuesday, it plans to begin serving meat that has never received antibiotics – poultry in 2016, pork and beef six years after that is complete.

Government Shutdown – Impacts on Agriculture Research

The government shutdown will never directly impact me. I just work at a state University trying to mind my own business and finish up some research. At least that’s what I have been thinking all week as the news headlines focus on D.C. and Congress’ inability to do their jobs. As it turns out there […]

Saturday morning at Nashville Farmers Market

I grew up on a ranch where Saturday mornings were for chores and feeding the cattle. After 5 years of college, I still don’t know what to do with my Saturdays. My last trip to the Nashville Farmers Market was when my siblings came to visit on Spring Break. There wasn’t much in season then, […]
