What you are about to learn from reading this presentation will astonish you in two very counter-intuitive ways. First, complex problems affecting millions of people can have simple solutions that will not cost hundreds of billions, if not trillions, of dollars, borrowed from generations not yet born.; taxation w/o representation anyone? Second, if you can’t get the movers, shapers and rainmakers to buy-in to the solution most of the rest of us will never know of it.
According to The American Medical Association, more than half of all treatable and preventable disease can be traced to nutritional deficiencies and imbalances. Again, we are informed by the AMA that we have a duel epidemic in America of obese people who are malnourished. It begs the question, ‘how can a ‘fat’ person be malnourished’?
To be candid, for the vast majority it is not some moral failing or character flaw, they are simply desperate to satisfy the nutritional cravings of their brains and bodies, demanding more and more, just to maintain a minimal level of functional health. Unwittingly, they are consuming empty calories and eating themselves sick to death. This is the product of the unintended consequences of industrial scale mono-cropping and livestock husbandry that contemporary agriculture has evolved into.
Truth is, our health is being undermined by well-intentioned people of all persuasions who are demanding rules and regulations in food and health matters with little more than feelings or nefarious political agendas masquerading as self-righteous do-goodisms. Most of us have firm convictions about what we should and should not want to eat, but the only direct contact with the food chain that most of us experience is what we see when we sit down at the table.
However, too many are too quick to look for a demonic scapegoat in this dilemma, not counting the politicians ‘there be few’ here. Fact is, we simply didn’t understand the symbiotic relationships, and the violation thereof, between the health of our soil and our food, bodies, minds, communities and yes, even the health of our planet.
After generations of believing in “better health through better chemistry” we have re-discovered the truth, its better health through better biology. We are truly at the surface of understanding how all forms of life interact in the food chain, in fact, even scientists who make careers of these matters know ‘very much about very little’, and the honest ones readily admit it.
Peta-bytes of data-sets have been generated about food, sustainability, security, health, production practices… and endless statistics to pick from in support or denial of whatever position one wishes to hold. Believing that humanity has analyzed this well enough to dictate public policy about what we should eat and how it should be produced is beyond hubris.
No matter how fervently we support a particular point of view, or how much allegiance we feel to any particular dietary regime, or what kind of farming practices we think best serves humanity, or what we think about carbon footprints, global warming, greenhouse gases, or what economic religion we think best serves the purpose of providing good food to everyone; fact is, none have all the right answers, neither science nor ideology. Humility, not hubris, is the beginning of wisdom in the pursuit of truth.
What you will find here is what we know to be smart, simple, healthy, elegant and sustainable solutions to very large and complex problems. The culmination of years of research, struggle and at times even anguish’ to arrive at what we believe to be a noble and worthy endeavor. It is a revolution to restore our health by restoring the relationship between our soil and our sanity. We pray you will choose to join MOE Farms in this endeavor.
Although MOE Farms’ initial market is in the top 3% of the population, in terms of earnings and wealth, our strategic outcome is to definitively demonstrate, ‘you can feed the world nutritionally dense, sustainably produced, healthy and tasteful food at a healthy profit’. Again, if you can’t get the movers, shapers and rainmakers to buy-in to the solution most of the rest of us will never know of it.
