Wow, a whole different perspective.
So many buildings around you are no longer used. Is the land all mega-farms now?
There are still a lot of small family farms. Most are grain, a few are cattle. Many of these old structures are used for equipment storage, but the owners don’t seem to care if they fall into disrepair.
I’m sorry to say that there are a lot of factory hog farms in Illinois and Iowa. They try stay under the radar and aren’t easy to find unless you look for them. The stench, however, will hit you like a smack in the face.
Another reason for me not to eat pork! 😉
Yes, the pork from the factory farms just isn’t very good – bland, mealy, and sometimes a bit gamey – like an old boar, as my grandma would have said.
It’s certainly not the pork we ate growing up as kids!
True that! We raised our own and unless I can get similar pork, I pass. As MY grandma would say, “What is the world coming to?” 😉
