Bob Comis

Bob Comis grew up in a shopping mall in a suburb of Syracuse, New York, playing video games and eating fast food. In his late twenties, he woke up to the unfortunate reality of the industrial food system, especially factory farms. Three months into being a very unsuccessful vegan, Bob realized that he could move to the country with his horse-loving wife and start raising his own animals for slaughter, making sure that they were raised and killed humanely and ecologically. After six years, Bob is finally on the farm full time, and while it is not always easy, he couldn't be happier.
