Examining social and environmental issues through the animal kingdom.
The majority of animals produced for food in the US, come from large factory farm conglomerates designed solely to maximize agribusiness profits at the expense of our health, environment, and animal welfare. These Confined Animal Feeding Operations, release more greenhouse gasses than the entire transportation sector––directly impacting global warming. “Considered” centers on family owned Animal Welfare Approved farms, that raise animals for food with the highest ethical and environmental standards. In order for the farms to be certified, animals must be raised on pasture in their natural state of physical and psychological well-being, meeting specific criteria for each species. Animals are allowed to behave naturally, and perform their instinctive behaviors essential to their health and well-being.
Less than 1% of animals raised for food, are treated in this manner.
Thank you to all the farmers and their families for your practice of accountable agriculture; for serving the community and setting an ethical standard for how animals are raised for food. I am grateful for your transparency, flexibility, and trust in allowing me the freedom of passage to your animals and farmstead. Your dedication to your life in practice, promises to promote a more benevolent future for both humankind, the animal kingdom, and the environment.
