Big Bucks In Grass-Fed?

Interesting. Just wish the beef was raised in the United States as well.

Ethical Eating

I found a thoughtful post written by Sharon Astyk on her Casaubon’s Book blog: Eating Animal Products Ethically

It was posted in Comments on The Crunchy Chicken blog under today’s post about Grass fed beef and methane. Sharon’s post is a humongously long read, but it’s loaded with great things to think about. And there are also other great things to think about on The Crunchy Chicken, as always.

We look forward to having Olson’s cut and wrap our home grown grass-fed beef in the future.

Where’s The Beef?

The Puyallup Spring Fair is coming and if you go, make sure you check out the Northwest Junior Livestock Show. Little Cowboy might be an exhibitor there someday!
