Save Money - support American farmers

by Jo Withey
(United Kingdom)






America is a great country for producing food. Do you really want to buy imported food from a country that does not have such high standards of hygiene and welfare as your own? Also, do you really need to eat food that is not in season and transported from abroad at high cost both in terms of food miles and expense.


Life is hard enough for farmers, do not make it any more difficult for them.

However, there are two sides to this particular coin. Farmers must ask themselves should they be producing grains to be turned into fuel. It is essential for people to eat, but there are surprisingly, other forms of transport apart from cars.

Do you really need to buy all your food pre-packaged? Why not try cooking something straight from the raw state for a change. If you have a Crock-pot you are halfway there. Just toss the ingredients into the pot, switch on, go off to work and when you return your meal will be ready for you. Alternatively, switch on and cook overnight. In the morning divide the contents of the Crock-pot into portions and freeze for a later date. Easy when you know how and sooooo much cheaper and better for you.

The sodbuster movement meant the "barn-meeting movement". The party was dead. The Republicans had less to supply the farmers than did the dollars. Protecting tariffs created factory-made product costlier for farmers to shop for.

Great points

I wish we could all do a little better at slowing down and produce a bit more, rather than use, use and abuse.

Next time you go to the shopping mall stop for five minutes and people watch, it is nuts how we run around gathering things that are for the most part meaningless and leave our children to repeat our mistakes and planet in our wake of or all consuming thirst for the next "thing we need".
