Thank you, thank you SF for making it so easy to find ethically and pasture raised chicken. Chicken that grows slowly on an animal centered farm, eats green feed, encounters no physical obstructions (that’s right, no cages) and spends life on the same farm. It’s my first go at cooking “from the farm chicken”, I roasted it with butter salt, pepper and onions. It was delicious, it’s less tender than factory farmed chicken but that’s the way chicken is supposed to be > when a chicken spends its entire life running around it develops muscles. Slow roasted for maximum flavour.
When I think about shopping in the 16th and 17th century, my Hollywood tainted imagination starts stirring up images of trading posts owned by old men with white hair, general stores that smell like horses, and markets on the streets.
*Mail Order traditionally, was the process of selecting an item through a catalog, sending the company your order along with cash for the product plus shipping through post. You would receive your product by post in the following weeks.

When I went to university I ended up in a discipline (Sociology) that I surprisingly loved. I read the most fascinating books (such as this one, this, this, and this), my perspective on the world changed, and I got advice from some really smart people.
But I realized early on that the credentials I was going to graduate with were probably worth little in the real world.
