Changes to how our food system must begin at the grassroots level.  Support our local economy and our local farmers by spending your money on goods that are made locally.  We must also show our support through demonstrations that can alert our political officials to how we believe the food system should change.  The Rally for Food & Farm Freedom is just such a demonstration and it is going on in Washington DC this weekend.  If you are in the area, please check it out.

Thank you to Gene Baur for spending 25 years fighting for the ethical treatment of farm animals.  A true BAO Bad Ass Legend, Gene co-founded the Farm Sanctuary which works to protect farm animals from cruelty, inspire change in the way society views and treats farm animals, and promote compassionate vegan living.  While vegans are definitely bad ass, please remember you don’t have to be a vegetarian to want to fight for the rights of farm animals.  You can visit the New York Shelter in Watkins Glen, New York, "175-acre New York farm is set amidst rolling green hills and forests in the Finger Lakes Region of upstate New York."
