I am not saying that we should boycott Whole Foods. I shop at WF for things I cannot produce myself or find locally…but we need to be careful that we don’t just assume everything we find within its doors is good for us.
For the last several years my wife and I have been finding local farmers who raise natural or organic meat and produce. When we buy from a local farmer, we actually go to the farm and see how the food is being raised. When you, the consumer, do this, you become the inspector, and the farmer who has integrity is proud to show you around his or her place.
