Last night my husband and I uncovered a hidden gem, a local food utopia that prepares amazing food, grown on premises in a humane, healthy and organic way. To me, this is the holy grail of dining! The utopia in question is called Wyebrook Farm, a gorgeous working farm in Honey Brook, Pennsylvania (about an hour’s drive west of Philadelphia.) Wyebrook’s motto aligns perfectly with my own: “At Wyebrook Farm, we provide an alternative to the industrial food supply. By creating a diverse polyculture on our farm, we produce the healthiest animals and best food without the use of artificial fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides, hormones or antibiotics.”
I recently saw this article and it emphasized a point that I’ve been making to dog owners for years: I love your dog, and I know you do, too…but your dog is not a person! Your dog is not a baby. Your dog is not human, and is not capable of human emotions! I know I’m being blunt here, but I’ve seen so many preventable behavioral problems that can be directly attributed to the anthropomorphism of dogs by their owners. I particularly find that this is true with small and toy breed dogs, but I have also seen it with larger breed dogs too.
