This month has meat eaters upset. First, Mark Bittman wrote an article in the NYTIMES called "Rethinking the Meat Guzzler" (if you missed it, click on January posts just to the right of this column on this web page and you'll find it) and then there was the recall, the largest ever, of meat. There is an alternative to factory farms. Here are the names of local farmers raising beef, please look on the website map for more information and to contact the farmers to learn more.
