[Amish Series] “We Amish are *not* eco-friendly. We have no concern for the environment. I grew up using pesticides and toxins like Roundup and Miracle-Gro just like everyone else.” - Torah Bontrager @TorahBontrager
One of the biggest myths about the Amish is that we're eco-friendly and organic growers/farmers. We simply are not. "Amish" DOES NOT = safety. Don't buy any food that is branded with the word "Amish" if you're under the impression that it's safe or toxic-free.
