Connection to our Food: Harvesting Rosco

To show respect while harvesting our food, Mitch takes the Summer Farm students through the process, from birth to death, in a manner that gives thanks to the animal, allows students the opportunity to experience an on-farm slaughter event, and, perhaps most important, creates a platform to discuss the close connection of food raised for human consumption.

The program sounds great. Hope it was worthwhile for all. Having a healthy respect for where and how our food materializes on our plates is what tends to be missing in this country. Incorporating this kind of program into Ag programs is the first step in enlightening the masses.
