Does anyone buy it? I've seen it at Costco, and it's definitely more expensive, but after finishing "Fast Food Nation" (and learning far more about slaughterhouses than anyone really ought to know), and reading an article about how Atascadero Unified School District isn't serving beef anymore in school lunches because of nasty stuff going on in the meatpacking industry, I'm about ready to take the plunge.
Truth is we don't eat a whole lot of red meat. I DO buy ground beef to use in soft tacos, spaghetti sauce, and Siga Wat. I'll occasionally make pot roast (as in about twice a year). I don't want to give it up completely, but I WOULD love to support more ethical (and safe) means of beef production.
I was pretty skeptical about the book, expecting it to be a bunch of propaganda, but he documents everything and cites court cases, etc. where the major slaughterhouses WERE found to be at fault. So anyway, does anyone actually buy organic meat, and if so, just how much more expensive is it?
