Sustainable Food Market Research Poll

Pastured Pigs

I’m looking for people’s input on their interest level of purchasing naturally raised pork products. Please take a minute to answer my poll, and “Share It” with anyone you know. The more input the better! And don’t be afraid to leave a comment, I’d like to hear everyone’s views/opinions!

  1. We do something similar in Scotland with free-range Berkshire pigs. One of the major problems is that customers say they want pork from outdoor, free-range, rare-breed pigs but they only want it at the price of intensive pork. We’ve spent years trying to educate people about the facts—that intensive is cheap because it cuts corners, compromises welfare and externalises costs so if they want do so something about those then they have to pay more. Our efforts have largely fallen on deaf ears and it’s even worse now that the financial crunch has bitten hard. All most people want is cheap. It’s a hard slog.

  2. I have experienced similar reaction when we started selling our free range chicken and turkey. People were astounded at the price difference.
    I’m trying to plan my approach so we don’t over-estimate demand. One way we’ve done this with the chickens is pre-ordering. I definitely believe the road to a food-system based on sustainable practices will be a long, hard, slow one, but I do believe we’ll get there eventually. We just have to keep trying 🙂

I love hearing from you and read (and try to respond to) every comment. Thank-you for taking the time to write one!
