I haven't looked into it yet. But just thought I'd share.
That's what I figured. I'm so used to our fabulous co-op lamb (that is somewhat local and 100% grassfed) that it didn't even cross my mind to ask. I just called them, and [surprise, surprise
] they didn't know.... so she's calling a manager and will call me back to let me know if they are fed any grains.
Wow- KimPM, that is a horrible reaction to carrots. I don't blame you at all for not eating them.
We both ate the carrots- I figure it's just easier that way. Carrots were negative on my ELISA (not that that's a guarantee or anything).
We had some more yesterday for lunch. She slept slightly better last night, but not much. Her chin is a little bubbly this morning, but not obvious eczema spots yet. Of course I also had a few sips of water kefir last night, which I haven't been drinking for a few weeks.... so the bubbly chin could be from that too.
Or the lamb.
Or the beets, which we have trialed, but also haven't eaten for a few weeks.
I'm still holding out hope on the carrots.
