Suburban families who throw their milk away if its still in their fridge the day it expires

Hey! I do that. I have a fear of smelling milk that's gone bad, *shiver* ugh, the thought of it ooogs me out. But I've taken to buying ultra-pasteurized organic milk, so now we use it up way before the expiration date.

I'm not faulting you. I just find it interesting that impulses like these can be paired with an annual desire to witness the places where food (in theory at least) comes from.

Mentioning the ultra-pasteurized milk got me thinking... The places that we visit tend to be pretty well sanitized by the time we get to them. An orchard with a tractor ride and a handful of animals to gawk at is really a far cry from a Colorado feed lot or a Purdue chicken plant.
