Donnellson’s Leslie Hulsebus had a growing concern about the quality of food she was purchasing from her local supermarket for her three children and husband. She was also aware that the beef finding its way to the family dinner table was produced in less than a humane manner. But unlike many others that share the same worries, Hulsebus was in a position to do something about her concerns.
Welcome back to our blog. It’s been a while since we’ve shared our perspectives on local food and sustainable agriculture but we’re about to ramp things up again so stay tuned!
