A continuation of my milk question but with more info added...
So I looked at the website of the company which I eat my eggs from:
It's pretty cool, they have barn "tours" (virtual) and information. I'm not sure how they even put up a tour of the regular egg hens! Jammed up in cages. :( And think people will be OK with this? But that's a personal opinion.
I think the free-run/free-range hens seem OK? They get to run about and then just come to nesting boxes to lay their eggs and then run around again. I don't think I'd feel too bad eating these eggs. (I always have bought these eggs when buying eggs outright. Of course, I realize it is the normal eggs used in products.)
The milk thing is still confusing to me. After many videos, I also think small farm milk is OK (personal opinion). (The babies taken away thing is another topic to consider, I know. For now, I mean in terms of how the cows are treated.) BUT.... Canada gets its milk from 3 major suppliers. And those companies refer to their milk factories as... well, factories/plants.
I don't think the major milk distributors in Canada are exactly purchasing from small farm operations? So this leads me to ask: Is it true that I would have to buy specially labeled milk that indicates it's from a small farm to know it is from a small farm?
I think the major companies still factory farm to some extent, even in Canada??
I can do with soy/rice/almond/etc. milk. I'm thinking more in terms of milk *products* which can be difficult to "mimic"? Like how do you make vegan yogourt? Or vegan cheese? (I've tried Yves "cheese" and I can't hack that. Maybe there are better brands out there.)
I take the greatest pride in my humility.
