Eating Violence

My computer is out of commission for a few days, so I can't post as much as I want. I had to link to this essay Henry wrote for *catapult magazine. It's a good exploration of why we're starting this beef business.

Hey Sarah! Moses is 9 months--I love that age. Oliver is actually filling out quite a bit. I haven't weighed him in awhile, but he now overshadows the other kids.

I read Henry's article too. Great stuff. I actually sent the article to my principal. He has a small organic hobby farm, and butchers a few cows each year--just for community sale. I think our staff buys most of it. But we had an interesting discussion Friday in the staff room about organic dairy. I was getting slammed by a colleague for being "suckered" into organic dairy. She claimed that organic cows are sick cows and that there is no difference in the product (based on lab tests). Anyhow, I found Henry's life expectancy info pretty shocking.

You guys are doing such good work. I hope we can take Oliver to visit someday.
