A beef with meat-eating
Regarding the Farmer's
Markets & Beyond story posted October 26: It is misleading
and irresponsible to suggest a vegan diet lacks adequate nutrients
or that animal products must remain a staple of the human
diet. I wonder how much change you are really interested in
supporting. At the very least, you could refer readers to
a fair and unbiased source of nutritional information for
non-meat eaters. As it is, you sound rather like a softer
version of ConAgra.
Keep up the good work
Just wanted to tell you what a pleasure it is to get the
New Farm e-zine and how often I share articles with colleagues.
Having apprenticed organic farms in the early ’90s —before
the web became widely available—it was difficult to
get a lot of information about what was going on in the field,
so to speak! Now it is so easy, and I love the photos too!
Thank you so much,
