Rural Roots is a SMooShing Success

It's easy to feel glum about how factory farms treat the animals we use to make produce but Saturday's rural routes trip was an inspiring experience.

We arrived to San Barr farm in sustainable style, as usual, on a stretch bus provided by Hamilton Street Rail.  Upon arrival long horn farmers Josh and Jordan greeted our group and educated us on the intricate details of their trade.

Texas Longhorn Cattle are a magnificent species which produce the leanest beef you can find.  San Barr's stock is clearly happy and healthy and many of us purchased their heart healthy ground beef which they sell at $5 per Lb.

From San Barr our group walked over to the Boar and Chick Farm next door where we got to see a wide variety of ethically raised farm animals including: pigs, chickens, cows, horses and sheep!
