The Vegetarians Who Turned Into Butchers - The New York Times

Ms. Kavanaugh, 30, is one in a small but successful cadre of like-minded former vegetarians and vegans who became butchers in hopes of revolutionizing the current food system in the United States. Referring to themselves as ethical butchers, they have opened shops that offer meat from animals bred on grassland and pasture, with animal well-being, environmental conservation and less wasteful whole-animal butchery as their primary goals.


A New York steak will run you about $30 I reckon. Still, it beats being a vegan.

I confess, I do find eating meat ethically dubious. But there's just nothing like a very rare, juicy, altogether perfect Filet Mignon, or T-bone, or even a perfectly cooked hamburger . . . I can do without pork and lamb if I have to. Pigs are pretty bright.
