  1. You’ve got my vote…and my support! I back farmers and locally grown foods, across the world! It is imperative to our health, for the protection and preservation of our environments, to grow and/or purchase and consume bio-dynamic, organic foods/drinks.To also raise awareness of the safety and moral treatment of human beings and of animals. Imagine how much better a place this world would be, if we all did “right” by every living organism and person. Imagine!!! Then bring it to reality, its your “choice” …choose wisely, reputably, and worthy…please and thank you very much.~Valerie Gentzel (Vanderbilt)
