Today, on Live Simply, The Podcast, I’m talking to Travis from Trailbale Farm.
Trailbale Farm is my source for meat and eggs. The farm strives to raise their animals in the most natural, humane, and environmentally-beneficial manner. Travis shares what exactly this looks like in today’s episode. He also shares why it’s important to raise animals this way, and why as consumers we should be concerned about and aware of where our meat and eggs come from and how the animals are raised. Travis also shares what exactly to look for when purchasing eggs and also explains what all those egg labels really mean– cage-free, free range, vegetarian-fed, etc.
