“Organic: of, relating to, yielding, or involving the use of food produced with the use of feed or fertilizer of plant or animal origin without employment of chemically formulated fertilizers, growth stimulants, antibiotics, or pesticides”.
What if you were told the safest and healthiest meat you could eat does not come from a supermarket ?
As Americans we are reading labels and trying to protect our families from the growing concerns of the corporate food industry. With increased birth defects and health problems, the idea of genetically modified animals and plants, aided by unnatural diets, growth hormones, pesticides, antibiotics, and chemical fertilizers, becomes alarming.
I could produce volumes on the horrors of industrialized farming. Show pictures of disgusting feed lots, inhumane treatment, manufactured diseases and just straight unnatural practices.
For some time now my family has been off beef, because, as a hunter, I have access to natural meat alternatives. The staple of that is the original red meat, Whitetail Deer. At a greater protein content and lower cholesterol rate, venison is packed with iron, niacin, omega 3 fatty acids, B6, B12 and riboflavin. You can’t go wrong.
As humans, our lives have intertwined with deer since the dawn of mankind. As a natural predator to the Whitetail deer, we are an important component to the balance of the eco-system.
It is the ultimate sustainable food source.
According to Sustainable Table, “sustainable farmers and ranchers treat animals with care and respect, implementing livestock husbandry practices that protect animals’ health and wellbeing. By raising livestock on pasture, these farmers enable their animals to move freely, engage in instinctive behaviors, consume a natural diet, and avoid the stress and illness associated with confinement.”
Hunters treat animals with the utmost respect as the forerunners of conservation and wildlife preservation. As a moral member of the ecosystem, hunters stress the ideas of fair chase and ethical clean harvests. Whitetail deer will maintain free movement and “engage in instinctive behaviors,” for their entire lives. Our wild game will maintain a natural diet and never experience even a second of confinement.
Hunters rely on the skills of understanding these “instinctive behaviors” to hunt our prey in the natural act of predation. Every year we will regulate our hunting season and laws to ensure the continued survival of our food source. I do not recreationally use the outdoors, I am not a tourist to the trees, I am a participating member of a sustainable ecosystem. A 100% organic system of life.
(this short film in no way is meant to target or hurt sustainable farming practices. as an organization we commend those farmers that continue to push the natural farming practices that do not threaten or effect our natural Eco-system.)
