You Have a Biased Interest

October 1, 2012

Ever feel like you’re in a no win situation? We do! From GMO to “big ag” to labels no matter what we say there is going to be a group of people criticize it. Something like this:

I’m in a forum, the subject of food comes up and GMO. I say folks don’t have to choose GMO – we have non GMO food shares. “You have a biased interest…you’re selling something.”

So another forum, same subject comes up. I say folks can choose GMO or non GMO as they want. If they want to buy on cost and convenience, then the possibility exists it’ll have some GMO in it – or not. “You have a biased interest…you sell GMOs.” (No, actually we do not!)

Third conversation, same topic. Folks should be able to choose. Response…all should choose as long as it’s just like us.

Is it any wonder that it seems food is a battle zone? The truth is, yes, we have a biased interest. Every one of us should have an interest in their food, where it comes and how it gets to the table. Shouldn’t we actively make food choices?

The truth is, whether folks buy from us or not, they have and are making food choices. I haven’t seen anyone doing without food yet, so whatever they buy is food choice. As we strive to move forward, we do have a biased interest – providing the best food we can for our customer’s food choices and for ourselves. Why is that a bad thing?

Would folks prefer we didn’t care? I hope not! We’re looking forward to some exciting new things, and if that makes our perspective biased, well then I guess it is what it is. What’s left when accusing bias? Transparency and the truth?

We can handle that. Can you?

      Life’s too short to be scammy and put effort towards negativity. Even with our memorial trees, we seek positive…carrying the memory of loved ones to the next generation.

    Best line ever. I do have an interest in my food and it looks like my farming days may be coming sooner rather than later. I’ve already started picking out the breeds of animals we will be raising on our future farm, and I must say, all are heritage breeds. XD

      That’s awesome! We love the heritage breeds – if we can help make some connections give a shout! There’s nothing wrong with modern production breeds for what they were developed for, but I like different. 😀 And Buckeye or Delaware chickens are cheaper to feed than tigers! lol
