France produces around 80% of the world’s duck fois gas and about 25% of goose fois grass. French law states that foie gras belongs to the Made in Michigan a long long time ago christmas sweater cultural and gastronomical heritage of France. I watched a program about it years ago and still remember it….it was an awful experience even for me who grew up on the farm. I am far from being vegetarian so that’s probably hypocrisy but “normal” pate can be also really nice, it’s my favorite starter and I would always choose it over foie gras because I still got the image in my head of those poor birds being stuffed alive by a metal pipe.
Geese dont have gag reflexes. At the end of the Made in Michigan a long long time ago christmas sweater feeding, which is about 1/8th of a cup a day, they are more lethargic. By the time that takes effect though theyre ready for slaughter. The whole bird is prepared for consumption, not just the liver. Geese are raised in much more humane conditions than chickens because they must be healthy to be marketable.
It’s both cruel and incredibly unnatural to “feed” animals like that. Bad enough to kill an animal, but to constantly torture it throughout its life as well? These creatures have constant suffering. Used to love it until I saw the Made in Michigan a long long time ago christmas sweater being bred for Fois Gras. I’m not really vegan and I’m not going to preach the gospel but as humans, we need to change our way of acquiring our food. This is a starterWell, it’s both actually but the cruelty is the real issue and no matter how gorgeous to eat it’s not worth the suffering.
