The Implications of GMO Expansion and the Importance of Regenerative Agriculture

In this post, we dive into the critical issues surrounding the expansion of genetically modified organisms (GMOs), focusing on the recent introduction of the GM Purple Tomato. We express our concerns about the potential environmental and health impacts of GMOs, particularly regarding cross-pollination risks, unforeseen health effects, and their compatibility with regenerative farming principles. Highlighting the need for stricter regulations, enhanced consumer education, and stronger support for traditional farming practices, we call on stakeholders to advocate for an agricultural approach that prioritizes ecosystem health and sustainability. Join us at Pure Pasture Farms in our mission to protect and nurture our planet through regenerative agriculture.

Decoding The Labels: The Truth About Free Range, Cage-Free, and Pasture-Raised

Navigating the supermarket for eggs and chicken can be confusing with labels like Cage-Free, Free Range, Organic, and Pasture-Raised. These aren't interchangeable and each has varying implications for animal welfare and quality. Cage-Free chickens may still be cramped; Free Range lacks strict regulation. Organic focuses on diet but not living conditions. The gold standard is Pasture-Raised, offering the best living conditions for the birds. At Pure Pasture Farms, our chickens are truly pasture-raised, promoting a healthier, more sustainable food system. Make informed choices—happy conscious shopping!
