A Day on the Farm

While walking through a Farmer's Market here in Bend, Oregon, I stopped at this intriguing booth and chatted with these folks, who asserted that goat meat was a healthier alternative to beef and that raising goats was more environmentally sound, which, if true, makes this photo qualify for Think Green Thursday. I generally avoid posed pictures, but sometimes I think I get lucky. In the background the words "Goat Meat" and "Healthy Red Meat" are captured neatly between this wonderful couple, and the sign "Goat Breast" looks like it is pinned to and pointing, well, I won't go there. It is said that people often look like their pets. Look at this man's beard and this woman's gentle face and tell me what you see.

This one is new to me, but something to consider. But I love those cute little critters. Don't know if I could bring myself to eat one.

Many meat markets here feature goats. Our Caribbean people have brought their tastes with them. I haven't tried it. Can't bring myself to it.

Not convincing. Or, as Lois Anne would say, "Why do people have to eat animals, anyway?"

Hmmm. What did the animals ever do to us that we have to kill them?

To go green, according to some folks, means giving up meat entirely...

I think my comment got lost...Hi Lee..interesting about the goat meat and I love to see people raising food that you know was treated well and not pumped full of antibiotics. Thank you for participating in Think Green Thursday...Michelle
