Story at-a-glance -

  • The documentary American Meat is “a pro-farmer look at chicken, hog and cattle production in America,” featuring full-time organic farmers
  • There are vast differences between meats from animals raised in Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations (CAFOs) and organically-raised, pastured animals, both in terms of nutrient content and contamination
  • When it comes to choosing a source for chicken and eggs, the closer you can get to the “backyard barnyard,” the better. Buy them from small community farms with free-ranging hens that are organically fed and locally marketed
  • You can also farm your own food. It’s all a matter of scale. You can start small by growing some sprouts to eat with your daily meal. Sprouts are some of the easiest, least expensive, yet most nutritious food you can grow at home
