In full disclosure, much of my discussion of the positive will center around the work that I do with my husband, and that is raising livestock on pasture. But I will be sharing many more stories than ours, stories of innovative farmers, ranchers, and backyard gardeners raising animals for meat, milk, and eggs in ways that compliment the natural behavior of those animals and honor the natural resources upon which our food must come from.
The purpose of Honest Meat is to challenge your assumptions about animal agriculture, encourage you to question practices of the industrial model, and inspire you to seek out the alternatives. If you have stories you think others should know about, photos or video of what's right and wrong in animal agriculture, or questions about different practices, please share your thoughts. I want this blog to be about learning and challenging, but not about name calling or personal attacks.
