Lots of scrappy talk going on here about the Hogget Cook Off!

I've attended the "funeral" of lots of birds... Chickens, ducks, turkeys... Eaten most of them too.

But I have yet to actually swing the axe.

That's next. If I can know them in life and *after* death, I can know them as they die as well.

If I'm going to be a farmer of some sort, I need to know what to do at all stages! :)

my, my, my what a debate! i can understand both sides and ultimately it's just a personal choice it seems. what feels right for your body and/or your soul. but, you can't argue with the more people who know and understand where their food comes from (whether it is veggies or meat) the better.

There's restaurant here in Toronto called Cowbell that practices 'Tip to tail' butchery to serve in the restaurant. Joel from Well Preserved did a whole series of posts on his experience with the class they offer- it's worth a read!

Whoa. What a discussion! Politics, religion and what we eat.... all topics of heat and fury. I'm sure if most people had to supply every bite that went on their tables like the pioneer families that settled our lands, we would not be having these conversations. Somehow survival puts life in perspective.

Wow....at least the people on your blog are more respectful of one another. There seemed to be quite a few heated exchanges. At least people are examining the issue which is better than continuing on in ignorance.

You hit a nerve.
