Meat normally means a butcher, or farmer selling their home reared meat direct. Please ask your local butcher where he gets his meat from and note that it takes around 600 plastic cartons to sell a beef animal in a supermarket compared to zero plastic at your local butcher. You butcher will also be able to advise you on the best cut of meat to suit your recipe or give advise on cooking the meat you buy.
We would love to see more farmers switching to growing food for local people instead of intensive mono-culture production of commodities for world markets and feed for intensive meat, dairy and egg production.
If you are vegetarian or vegan please note that animals are a integral part of sustainable agriculture providing natural fertiliser, improving soil and helping feed the world. Especially when 70% of the world agricultural land cannot grow crops but can be grazed.
If your local butcher or farmer is not on our map please email their details to [email protected] and we will add you to our monthly prize draw.
