    Oh, that is so disappointing! I hope it's not the farmers you recommended when we spoke via email about Raleigh resources. I now have my mom and sister shopping there!! Where are you shopping now? I will be up in your area again in October and would love to discuss any changes to your recommendations...we are soooo close on our move to NC. :) We've been buying from the farmers at the Wake Forest Farmer's Market and Rainbow Meadows Farm at the NC State Market. (Those were your recommendations when we spoke in the Spring anyway. Any changes? I spoke to another WAPF Chapter Leader in your area and she offered to meet up at Durham Market. I've never been there before.

    I can't agree more about the importance of visiting the farm you plan to purchase from, especially when it comes to raw milk and meats. Know how the animals live, what they eat, how the product is obtained from the animal (i.e. meat processing and milk collection). Sorry you found out you've been duped all this time :(

    Ummm, not happy to read this- do you mind sharing privately? I can understand not wanting to put the name out their publically, but I would like to know and be able to let a few other friends who frequent the farmer's market know too...

    I am just floored! I recently started purchasing from a supplier at the FM b/c I believed they had a decent product. Please could you PLEASE email me or message me on FB the farmer in question. I am really worried now :( Thanks so much!

    I would like to know as well Laura. If it's who I suspect it is, then I have paid quite a bit of very hard-earned money to this farmer for nothing.

    The reaction of that farmer when I tried to organize a CareerExchange kid tour with them: "Oh, it's so wet now, and we need to prepare for the big tour, and maybe in 3 months... or 4... we are not ready!"

    In contrast, the reaction of Rare Earth Farm's Karl Hudson when I asked him last week: "That would be fantastic! And you can help us preparing for the farm tour!"

    Joel Salatin said in his presentation: "There can be no accountability without transparency. You can visit my farm 24/7. Just don't wake me at 2am - come quietly!"
