There’s a farm in London?

Today, Haute Pasture went on a field trip to Hackney City Farm, which is actually located within the city of London. From their About page:

For over 20 years, Hackney City Farm has been giving the local community the opportunity to experience farming right in the heart of the city.

It offers an opportunity for children and adults to get up close to a range of farmyard animals and to learn about where their food comes from and why that matters.

Britons seem to be much more concerned with the source of their food than Americans, and maybe programs like Hackney City Farm have a lot to do with that. It’s important to remind people that animal products come from animals, and not machines. The disgusting people involved in the recently-exposed abuse at the Iowa pig factory apparently never learned that lesson.
