ORGANIC CHICKEN PRICES HAVE DOUBLED YEAR TO DATE, BEEF PRICES SET TO EXPLODE
Just wanted to give another confirming story from us here on the Central
Coast of California about food prices. We try our best and buy all non-gmo
and organic, I buy organic whole chickens by the case, from our local fresh
food store, usually 7 to 10 small to med young chickens per case. Just this
week I paid $217.00 for 8 in a case. Same time last year it cost me $98.00
for a case, i usually get two cases but it's getting hard to keep up. we
have our own hens and a rooster for eggs but we may have to rethink and get
a incubator for raising our own to eat.
My L ocal Grass fed beef seller here told us last week at Farmers market
that it's getting hard to feed the cattle good grain , stories of farmers
feeding their herd straw and whatever they can find, she's lucky their
family farm is in a good area for well water. She did say we have about a
month till even herself and the rest of the farmers will have to raise
there beef prices. She also filled us in on the last inspection at our only
local Organic USDA meat packaging company in Creston , about 2 months back
they had 6 inspectors there running him thru the ringer for petty paperwork
issues all butchering was at A standstill for a month.
Anyways yes its getting really bad and unfortunately most are still
asleep. God Bless Steve.
