|Customer Service||3.0 (2)|
I love chicken, and I love to support my local farmers, ESPECIALLY if they value what the customer wants and make an honest effort at applying that information to their business practices. Other farms in the area listen when customers ask, "Is it GMO-free?" Miloski's does not. At least in my case they did not. I've been stopping by Miloski's on occasion over the last seven years since I've lived in the area. Their chicken is great. Always fresh, and stays moist and tender during cooking. I recently stopped by to pick some up. Prices were about the same as Purdue when it's not on sale. (I no longer buy Purdue chicken, or any other CAFO meat, for that matter.) Miloski's doesn't run a CAFO. They do everything the right way with their chickens, EXCEPT feed them non-GMO grain. It occurred to me to ask the question on their Facebook page several weeks back after I made a stop at the store. When the answer came back "yes" to GMO grain, I replied that I thought it was unfortunate, because I could no longer eat their poultry products as long as they continue to use GMOs to feed them. My answer was ignored, and my post was promptly deleted from their Facebook page. To me, that is very poor business practice. People are concerned about GMOs and Big Agriculture eradicating America's small farms, and poisoning people with GMO seeds and pesticides, the Franken-food these produce, and the bees and other beneficial pollenators that it's killing. It's up to the small, local farms to fight back against the systematic destruction of our food supply, and their livelihoods. It's extremely unfortunate that some small farms remain so short-sighted that they continue to only operate for profit and don't care about the bigger picture. I hate to say it, but I think Miloski's is one of these such farms. I gave them only 2.5 stars for quality & price/value, and they are lucky to get that much, because in my opinion, no GMO product can be considered of any great quality or value at any price, but buying from them still supports the local economy, and because they are not a CAFO, their chicken is still better than buying Purdue. As for Customer Service, 1 star is the least I could give. I'd give ZERO if I could, for reasons stated above. This doesn't apply to the gentleman who helped me at the store front. He was pretty nice.
