Tom’s great post reminded me of this opinion piece by Tamar Haspel in yesterday’s Washington Post. Having spent a fair amount of my childhood on my godfather’s cattle ranch in central Texas, which because of his penny-wise ways was practically organic before organic was cool, I have a strong affection for farms, farmers, ranches, ranchers, and a good steak. Luckily for me, my part of Washington, D.C., has readily accessible organic meat and vegetables from farms in the region, so sign me up as a “farmivore.” Anybody else want to join me?
