How Far Would You Go For Real Food? Would You Kill a Rabbit With Your Own Hands?

December 18, 2013 2 min read

Today I came across the picture below on Facebook. This lamb's name is Tim, and today he will be butchered to provide food for the family that raised him. DaNelle runs the page Weed 'Em & Reap which is about real food... very real food. [caption id="attachment_33846" align="aligncenter" width="283"]lambtim Photo from Weed 'Em & Reap[/caption] The comments on this picture ranged from outrage at the audacity to post (and name) and animal that will soon be dead and on a plate, to envy at the ability to provide such humanely raised and healthy meat for a family. There was also another post on Facebook today about raising rabbits for food and how when it comes time for butchering, if one can handle butchering such a cute animal. If you can handle taking the life a a cute fuzzy rabbit, they are apparently a very easy and inexpensive food source that can be raised in an urban setting. Aside from today of all days apparently being the day for urban farming butchering, these posts brought to mind the question of just how far would you go for healthy, humanely raised meat? Too, if we are unwilling to participate in the manufacture of our food, do we have a right to eat it? So, just how far WOULD you go for real food? Would you raise and butcher your own meat? Or do you prefer to have someone else "do the dirty work" for you? It seems in our never-ending quest for health, this option is rarely discussed. Instead we rely on others to verify how our food is produced and if that meets our standards. A good example is Whole Foods 5-Step Animal Welfare Rating system where we rely on others to inspect farms and butchering facilities for us and rate them on how close to nature animals are raised and how clean and humane the butchering process is. But, can we know for sure that the whole process is up to our standards without being a part of the process? How far would you go for real food? Would you be willing to raise and butcher your own animals for food?   Feature image by: Robobobobo

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 2-3 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.

All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
