  • The Rabbit Hole of “Humane” Deception
    “We had no idea that we were going to see what we saw.” These are never words you want to hear about a slaughterhouse.

  • The Personal Politics of Drought Shaming
      When the media first started covering the California drought it did so from the perspective of the specific foods we eat. Given that 80 percent of the state's water is used for agriculture, this would seem to make sense. Mother Jones crusaded against the water-hogging impact of nuts, especially almonds. Michael Pollan, seizing on an [...] (...more)

  • Avian Flu and You
    An aggressive strain of avian flu—the largest to appear in the United States in over 30 years—has forced Midwestern chicken and turkey producers to cull over 15.1 million birds since early March. Most of these losses have occurred since mid-April. The virus, which doesn't appear to pose an immediate threat to humans, has spread to [...] (...more)

  • “Local” Vermont Pork Comes From Pennsylvania
      As far as media attention goes, April 11, 2014, was a banner day for Greg Finch. As the lone supplier of antibiotic-free, pastured Vermont pork to the highly acclaimed 5-Knives, a specialized supplier of local pork, Finch was offered what amounted to subsidized advertising space in the Burlington Free Press. The paper's staff reporter, Sally (...more)

  • The Business of Meat
    The following review essay appeared in the Spring 2015 edition of The Virginia Quarterly Review. A link to the complete article is below. Please leave comments there.   The worst thing about sausage is that it has to be made.

  • Nature/Animal Photos
    My son, 13, has started a small business selling some of the photos he’s taken. He decided to do this after having unexpected success selling prints at an Austin arts fair. Feel free to check out his website and share it with others who might be interested. Most importantly, enjoy. http://okmphoto.photoshelter.com/#!/index     (...more)

  • Gene Baur: The Activist's Activist
    Gene Baur, a friend and fellow marathoner, is what you might call the activist’s activist. He’s articulate, charismatic, and a rare blend of incredibly friendly but serious at the same time. The range of his activism runs the gamut. He travels relentlessly to give talks about his work at Farm Sanctuary and the benefits of [...] (...more)

  • Raw Milk=Raw Deal
      On March 10 West Virginia's legislature passed a bill authorizing the consumption of raw milk. Republicans supported the measure on the basis of “farm-food freedom” and “consumer choice.” Democrats, soberly noting that unpasteurized milk can contain high levels of deadly bacteria, opposed it on the grounds that “it's unwise and unsafe,” (...more)

  • Niman's Naturalistic Fallacy
      In her book Defending Beef, Nicolette Hahn Niman absolves the act of eating meat from moral inquiry on the grounds that humans have always eaten animals. She explains that a “food web” in which animals and plants routinely consume each other (yes, plants eat animals) places all life in “an endless cycle of regeneration.” As [...] (...more)
