Hey y'all! Random Friday begging post. Forgive me, but I really want these guys to win this.
My favorite farmers over at Primal Pastures, who supply me with my chicken, beef and lamb, are in a kick ass contest thanks to an amazing adaptation they've made. They are veteran owned, treat their animals properly (you can tour the farm if you'd like) and treat their customers wonderfully. Their grub is amazing, and I'm ever so grateful to have found them. And they need your help! Let me have them tell you about it:
"OK guys - massive favor to ask... There is
$15,000 on the line and all you have to do is click below and VOTE FOR
US! We have a crazy, rad idea to END FACTORY FARMING and a really good
chance to win if you help us out by clicking below and voting for us - no signup required!
You all know
that we're super passionate about eliminating factory farms and feeding
the world with pastured poultry and grassfed meats. As a family team,
we have come up with a massive innovation that will allow super cost
effective, automated pastured poultry systems to be installed throughout
the world. These systems will heal the land, heal the people, heal the
birds, and heal entire countries. We entered our invention to
University of Wisconsin and they liked it enough to make us a top 30
finalist and fly us, all expenses paid, to present the idea at a major
"International Agricultural Innovation contest next month at UW-Madison.
The winner takes home $100,000 and there is also this $15,000
"Audience Choice / Facebook Contest" going on now! The idea takes the
Joel Salatin style "floorless chicken tractor" to the next level with a
scalable solar powered track system that will allow pastured poultry to
become more cost competitive with factory farmed chicken. The goal: END
So here's what we need: 1. PLEASE share this post with your network.
The key story is that this idea could legitimately put an end to factory
chicken farming as we know it in the United States. Who wouldn't want
that!? 2. Click on the link below and VOTE for us! You don't need to
