Episode 160: The Butcher Shop

Our first film of 10 in Ireland is about McGraths of Lismore – a traditional butcher shop with its own farm and abattoir.  With many small businesses struggling to survive, this family butcher has been in the trade since the 1600s. Note: contains a real account of meat production, that viewers may be sensitive to.

    What a lovely family. So wonderful to be able to meet so many different sorts of people.

  3. You guys continue to make films with such humanity and humor. The killing scene wasn’t easy to watch – even for a devoted carnivore – but I appreciate that you guys approached the cut as humanely as the guy holding the gun. Can’t wait for more from Ireland. One request: subtitles please!

    Mirra, Daniel, and Hunter,

    Thank you for this beautiful film! Thank you for your bravery to tell a much bigger, more complex story. To bring us just a little closer to the death of the animals we eat in hopes that we honor their lives more and have a greater understanding of what it means to be alive. And, thank you to the family for sharing their story.
