That’s not a healthy way to approach anything.

    #51: Jim Ondrusek - VP of Fresh Pork at Pederson's Farms where Humanely Raised and No Antibiotics Ever are second nature

    Jim Ondrusek 
    There are as many opinions on what humans should eat as there are ways to make food. Of course, not everyone chooses to eat animal proteins, but if you do, you might also care about how the animals are raised and the process behind getting that pork chop to your plate. And if there’s anyone qualified to answer those questions, it’s Jim Ondrusek, the VP of Pederson’s fresh pork. Jim’s been in the meat industry for 46 years, and his family has for 110 years. In this episode, Neil and Jim discuss the details of humanely raising pigs in a way that genuinely shows Pederson’s appreciation for the lives behind the food they make and the lives of the people that make it possible.
