A recent change...

For a few months now I have been thinking about how the animals that we eat are particular pigs.

So I have been making a concsious decision to buy free range ham, pork and bacon.  I think sometimes we are under a bit of an illusion imagining a friendly farmer lovingly raising his animals in green open pastures till the day they are made into the meat on our plate.  I hope that the animals I eat are raised that way...but in reality they probably aren't.  The fact is that most pork products we buy are from animals raised in tiny stalls where they can barely stand up or see other pigs, they never see outside or are able to furrow in dirt (I won't post any photos of's pretty distressing).

So I am trying, (where I can get enough information) to make a more informed choice, and support those farmers that are living that nice vision in my head.

For more information you can read this.


  1. Where do you get your free range bacon from? And is there a huge price difference? We don't really eat ham or pork, but we do like our bacon :-)

  2. It is just in woolies with the other bacon, I don't notice a price difference.
