Lost Art of Consuming Meat

This is a video discussion of factory-raised, store bought meat vs. homestead raised meat vs. wild meat. It is a good idea to add home-raised meat and wild game to your diet now, when you have a choice. Not only is it better for you than store-bought meat; it also tastes different from what you may be accustomed to if the only meat you consume is that which is commercially produced. Not necessarily better or worse, but definitely different. I have read of people actually starving to death rather than eat food that is different from what they are used to. I actually know people who grew up in rural America, yet will not eat rabbit or venison. Forget about that "pioneer spirit" that is supposedly innate to Americans; if the thought of eating raccoon meat causes you to feel revulsion, you probably won't eat it during truly bad times either. The time to start working on changing that is now.
