Description
For most of her life, Catherine Friend was a carnivore who preferred not to consider where the meat on her plate came from—until she bought a farm and began raising sheep for meat. In this book Friend relates her ensuing adventures in the world of livestock and farming, offering insights—for omnivores and herbivores alike—into how our meat is raised, how we buy it and from whom, and why sustainability is desirable and possible.

"[Catherine] Friend has a unique perspective on the morals, economics and practicalities of raising and eating meat humanely. With low-key, Mid-western humor, she takes readers on a tour of an abattoir, writes a love letter to her lambs heading for slaughter and relates how chivalry has been bred out of roosters.… Her suggestions are so reasonable that even the most rampant, mainstream meat-eater might consider trying them."—Publisher's Weekly
