Food For Thought – Meat does not come from the freezer

Food For Thought – Meat does not come from the freezer


My motivation is to… I currently have a project to
become a farmer To create a farm, with the help of permaculture
and organic practices. I don’t have much experience I only decided to do this
this past year If you want to eat something, you have to produce it, And if you do, you must know how to
manage the whole chain, the transformation process What I felt…
I was shaking quite a bit What shocked me was
that it was so easy to take an animal’s life. That really shook me, I expected it to be harder,
from a physical standpoint But it was easy
and it happened quietly… Yet, inside I was feeling [tension]
growing and I was trembling. That’s why I had difficulty finishing. What I liked with the group, was that they didn’t speak a lot,
didn’t make noise, they were quietly looking So, it didn’t stress me I didn’t hear laughts or
discussions in the back. I liked the ambiance because
it shows respect for what we’re doing that was nice Yeah, I am happy
to have come here for such an experience because people forget how this
really happens, normally And since I also want to do
animal husbandry I needed to go through that step After this experience,
my relation to meat changed I will prefer finding
my own meat Not necessarily to
always kill the animal but at least prepare it and all I find it very interesting because
it brings this aspect of eating healthy Then, I won’t lie
about the fact that I still want to eat meat but in terms of quantities,
reflect on the fact that I am not obliged
to always eat meat, It’s true that
I hadn’t realized that I eat meat everyday,
and even at every meal. So, it’s not something that good for me
or for the animals because we eat way too much,
and it’s not necessary When I’ll see my friends, I’ll… when I’ll express this… because I know them, they’ll say
“you killed a duck” and laugh But I’ll explain the rationale Why I did it and why I think it’s important
for most people to have this experience not to become farmers or such but at least to see it or live it to be able to say I know
what it is to kill my own meat I know what i means to prepare it
and to cook it And to enjoy as much as possible
this moment because it’s a moment! More than just meat,
it’s a moment to live
