Raising Animals For Meat - One Man's Adventure
One of the websites that I subscribe to their weekly email newsletter is Chris Martenson's Peak Properity. If you watched the recent video with Greer, Orlov, and a few others linked in a different thread, you will have seen Martenson too. I find their newsletter useful since it agragetes a lot of links to articles and news I find interesting.
(I haven't signed up for their membership but I'm seriously considering it)
Anyways the newletter also contains links to podcasts and articles they have on the site. The one this week caught my eye as a possible carreer for a resourceful Green Wizard in the coming days, that of a meat animal rancher (be it cows, sheep, or other animals all the way down to gueni pigs, lol)
Adam Parks runs Victorian Farmstead Meat Company, which practices a better way to raise their animals and sell their products. Adam talks about what got him into the business of being a "meat-repreneur", and why the way the meat is butchered is as important as the quality of the meat itself. Included are some tips to cooking that good food too.
Here's a link to the podcast
Just below the podcast is a link to the transcript of the podcast, if you are like me and prefer to actually read things.
On a personal note, with the way meat prices have climbed over the past decade, I find myself limiting the amount of meat I buy anymore. Its more of a special treat for me than a day to day essential in my diet.
I wonder how many of us do the same, or have you opted for a less expensive cut of meat?
