After Chipotle ran their video during the Grammy Awards a few weeks ago, we saw a lot of chatter online from both consumers and growers about what they liked and disliked about the ad. We posted a blog about the commercial, and believe it doesn’t tell the entire story. Take a look at what one farmer, Crystal Cattle, shared on her blog:

Chipotle, Your Grammy Commercial Still Doesn’t Change My Mind

Ok, time to revisit the subject.

Things I would like to point out.

1. I have not eaten at Chipotle for years. You can read about that here.

2. I support consumers having options on the method their food was raised - organic, natural, conventional (my family and the boy's family and 99% of the food on the grocery store would be conventional). And no, I don't consider our farm a factory farm.

3. I can't stand when groups, individuals, companies have to criticize, falsify information, etc. to make their decisions look like the better choice. I get marketing - I am a marketer - but to me this is not the way to go about it.
