Organic Agriculture v “Industrial” Agriculture

 

Last month I asked that you consider Veteran-owned Farms when searching for healthy locally sourced quality produce and meats in order to support Veteran agriculture endeavors. This month I am asking you to support Veteran and organic agricultural endeavors in order to help minimize environmental concerns generated by industrial agriculture; concerns brought about through the use of chemicals that continue to pollute farmland, watersheds, ground water, and the produce consumed. Organic agriculture provides nutrient rich produce by eliminating the use of these chemicals.

I cannot overlook the current advantage to conventional (industrial) agriculture; produce is able to be exported in great quantities to regions that lack food production. It is better to eat less nutritious foods than starve. This being said, expanding organic production through education in many of these areas will not only provide health benefits currently lacking, but will also encourage less dependency on imported conventional produce that will lead to less environmental pollution. An added benefit to expanding organic production is increased employment together with a sense of independence that encourages a productive mindset.See: Organic agriculture key to feeding the world sustainably, February 3, 2016

Locally Sourced Produce, Veteran Farmers, & Eco-friendly Presentation

The National Restaurant Association has identified healthy, locally sourced, and organic foods as being the “hottest trend” in its 2017 Culinary Forecast, and wrote, “While farm-to-table concepts and locally sourced food still rank as top trends, they are moving toward perennial favorite territory, indicating that they may be on their way to becoming the new normal.” NRA.

Today, Veteran agricultural endeavors have succeeded in bringing high quality and organically grown produce to local markets, while providing a path for combat Veterans to reengage in the larger community.  These farming and ranching enterprises are well organized, efficiently run, and successful due to the discipline, work ethic, and resilience that combat Veterans possess. See Clark Wolf, Forbes Magazine.

Let's Rise Above Meaningless, and Focus on Meaningful..

As 2016 comes to an end, it will be to our advantage if we are able to direct our attention towards issues that we can either control or to which we may be able to make meaningful contributions. The complaints and criticisms that have plagued our national consciousness during this past year must not interfere with our personal growth, our attitude towards having our country become a meaningful contributor to international growth, peace, and environmental responsibility, and above all, with providing education for our children that includes encouragement and guidance. Our politicians may have failed us, but we, as individuals, cannot fail in our effort to provide opportunity for our young.

In spite of media claims, we are a country of strong and well intentioned people; people who do care and embrace a strong sense of fairness.

During 2017 and thereafter, let’s try to remain optimistic about our lives, our businesses, our good intentions, and our commitment to our children. It is not difficult if one is willing to rise above media sponsored sensationalism.
