Would you choose not to buy grass fed beef from a great rotational grazing, certified organic, all the right things farm because it is very close to a coal fired power plant?

I would buy it. Coal plant is a minor distraction compared to what commercial beef production comes up with.

Hello Matt. What exactly do you see as a concern?

Most of those places are highly regulated with what comes and goes to and from the property. Are you seeing anything that is getting to the farm from the plant?
