There has been some attention paid lately to a new book about eating meat. I haven't read the book yet, but was pleased to see in the review in my local paper that the author doesn't go as far as to promote not eating meat, thoughtfully leaving that decision to the reader, but he apparently did a good job of illuminating the sordid facts about factory farming and agribusiness. And that seeking out small farmers who humanely slaughter is a good thing to do if you plan to eat meat.
We raise small, grassfed livestock on our small farm, and do our slaughtering and butchering ourselves. My husband is rather good at this, being fast and humane, and is offering classes to local farmers and local hunters on how to do this yourself. http://www.greenerpasturesfarm.com/ButcheringSheep.html
We also offer grassfed lamb to locals.
