  • People can be horrified all they want, this isn't going to really END until Americans stop feeling like we need cheap meat fourteen meals a week. Regulation might tinker and improve things a little, but the whole system is driven by our collective appetite for cheap meat. It is possible to find meat that was pastured on small independent farms and processed at small local meat locker facilities. But guess what? It's more expensive. So including meatless meals in our diets is also part of the solution. If you're interested in switching to non-factory meat, the Eat Wild website has info on farmers. Farmers markets are another good way to make connections.
