Where our food comes from and how it is produced is becoming a serious concern for consumers aware of some questionable practices in the agricultural industry. Not all practices within the industry are necessarily bad, but often the choices made by the producers are related more to profit than to taste or health. You do not have to be a vegetarian to be concerned about the treatment of animals bred and raised as food. Many of us are concerned about the use of chemicals to ripen fruit or kill pests.
