Unless you have been blissfully unaware, many studies have shown that there are countless chemicals, synthetic growth hormones, antibiotics, arsenic, and nitrates in your processed meats to name a few. Needless to say, these chemicals can be harmful and offer no health benefits.
It was studies such as these, as well as a desire to know where my food was coming from that lead me to the discovery of J&J farms and Farmer Jack. Located in New Castle, Indiana, Farmer Jack not only allows his animals to roam free but he uses no chemicals in his meats. With a wide selection of beef, poultry, pork, and eggs you can easily eliminate the need for grocery store meats completely. With the holidays coming up you can even special order a turkey but you will need to do so soon as he may run out quickly!
There are many ways you can take advantage of this local business and all the benefits that come with chemical free meat but the best way is by calling Farmer Jack in advance to tell him what you are wanting to ensure he has plenty. If you have a deep freezer you can stock up well in advance or simply place a standing order to be picked up every 4-6 weeks. Another great idea is to “go in” with another family or two and purchase an entire cow. Farmer Jack will process how you request it and if you are not sure then he can guide you through the ordering process.
This really is a great way to not only be proactive in your families health but to also support local farmers and know where your food is coming from. To place an order or if you have any questions you can call Farmer Jack at 765-520-0897!
