It sounds hard and heartbreaking, but it also sounds like you gave them the best life they could have.

I think you're right that we're totally divorced from our food at the moment, and to our detriment. I'm still city bound so no livestock here, will have to make do with buying from local butchers rather than supermarket.

Local butchers are great because they are able to tell you where the meat has come from. Being smaller, they rely on repeat business and they know good animal welfare brings that in the door. They rise and fall on their reputation.

It's good to support small local businesses, although sometimes hard to find the smaller ones!
