Holy Cows & Hog Heaven by Joel Salatin
Holy Cows & Hog Heaven: The Food Buyer's Guide to Farm Friendly Food
This book is a departure from Joel's previous books, which were aimed toward farmers wanting to direct-market their products.
Holy Cows & Hog Heaven takes a new tack: teaching the consumer about farming, so that both farmer and consumer can partner together to support a healthier food system. This book will teach you what to look for when you buy your food directly from the farmer, as well as what questions to ask the farmer, your grocer, and your government.
According to Salatin:
"I think the central question each of us needs to ask ourselves at the end of the day is this: 'Today, which food system advanced because of me—farm friendly food or industrial food?'"
Buying and eating healthier meat and dairy products takes more work on the part of the consumer, but the good news is, it's worth it!
