Fresh and Free Range...
Our Christmas Turkey. Free range, fresh, organic, no anti-biotics---a happy Turkey that cost an arm and a leg. But oh so worth it! Yes it is about four times the price of a Butterball---but Christmas only comes once a year. And once you've strayed away from the Factory Farmed Meats, well, you just don't want to go back to them. Either ethically or gastronomically.
If you are going to eat meat, you might as well have the best tasting meat available and imbibe in such with a cleaner conscience. I haven't asked the Pope (or my brother the Lutheran Pastor), but more and more I think eating a Factory Farmed Animal is a mortal sin up there with those seven other deadly ones. Eating animals from concentration camps must be the eighth deadliest sin. For details, see Food Inc. or read Michael Pollan.
