Okay, so I've read the Omnivore's Dilemma

Daniel Duane | Jul 26, 200601:58 PM     31

and I'm wondering. What's our best local option for the kind of beef and chicken Pollan encourages us to eat? Pasture-raised, I mean, and local. Marin Sun Farms, yes--I love the stuff--but that's only useful if I can brave the Ferry Plaza madness on Saturdays. Are there any reliable weekday possibilities? As far as I can tell, Niman is corn-finished in a feed lot, ditto for Prather Ranch. And then there's this "Estancia Beef" being hawked at my neighborhood Good Life Market. Sounds great and all, strictly pasture fed, but the brochure describes it as being from small family farms all over Uruguay and other South American countries. This is feeling a little vague and fossil-fuel dependent to truly answer the Pollan call to action: to know where your meat comes from, and to buy local if you can.

thoughts?
