Season 1

Episode 23: Thousand Hills

When thinking of topics to cover next, I realized that I hadn’t done anything on grass-fed beef.  This method of rearing animals is one of the cornerstones of the sustainable food movement .  It’s also one of the most highly contentious issues.

I myself am constantly in debate about whether meat should play a part in the future of eating at all.  What I do know is that when reared properly, a cow can actually give back to the earth rather than take away from it.  This method takes more land and is more expensive, but the era of cheap meat at every meal needs to end.  I will stop with my opinions and let Tod Churchill, owner and founder of Thousand Hills Cattle Company, explain the intrecacies of raising cows on grass.
