Raising & Humanely Slaughtering Local Food

Sep 11, 2013

The local food movement on the Cape and Islands has expanded to include raising animals for consumption. For our regions small farmers this raises the question, how do you slaughter the animals humanely and without having to drive hundreds of miles? Ali Berlow, founder of the Island Grown Initiative  joins us to talk about the way Martha’s Vineyard has addressed this issue. We’ll also talk with Jefferson Monroe and Dan Silvia, two local farmers making a go at raising chickens for meat.
