In Reply to: We Eat Meat... Part 2; Good Read posted by Don, Dueling Bubbas on January 14, 2014 at 18:07:56:
Cos: A lot of people will just never care but if you give me Commodity Meat next to any of our farmer's meat I will know which is which 100% of the time. Ours is natural and delicious and real and the other stuff is...stuff.
D: Why? How do you quantify and explain it to people?
Cos: We're, pretty much, a venue for the farmers. They raise the animals the right way and we just try to get out of the way in presenting them to our guests. They do all the work. We're the forum. Some people buck at the price but I say...you buy an organic apple, it costs twice as much as a regular apple. You buy pork that's being fed organic apples...it is a choice, but it's worth it. You can Taste the Difference.
D: I don't know if it's the timing of my commute or it's just there all the time but I frequently pass the rendering truck at the packing plant around the corner coming off the Green Line. The rendering truck does not have to visit PQM
Cos: We waste NOTHING. We use 100% of the animal. With pigs we use the skin, we make head cheese, we make stock from the bones, the tails end up in the Bolognese at Publican. We waste Nothing. That's how we honor the animal. We don't throw any of its Life away. Here's something to take away. If you go to the freezer at PQM and buy some of our packaged Publican hamburger patties...those are from ONE COW. If you get a burger at McDonald's there ismeat from over 1000 cows in it. Dramatize that in your head.
Thanks for reading through this long piece. Don't make fun of PETA. Support the Livestock Conservancy.
