Eat Wild

Bob has been reading Omnivore's Dilemma and trying in a stealth-like way to impart the information he has been learning about the way our meat is produced. At first I wasn't listening because I thought it was going to be an attempt for him to encourage me to stop eating meat (not something a woman in her 7th month of pregnancy with no control over what she is eating wants to hear). Once I heard him say "it is more important to know what the animals are being fed and it is better to use meat more as a side dish and not so much the main part of the meal seven days a week" I perked up. However, I have decided instead of reading Omnivore's Dilemma (I am going to trust him to tell me what I need to know) I am going to cheat a little and read through Jo Robinson's website, Pretty interesting and eye opening stuff! is owned and operated by Jo Robinson, an investigative journalist and New York Times bestselling author who specializes in science-based health information. Jo has been investigating the differences between animals raised in feedlots and pasture-based farms for the past seven years. is your source for safe, healthy, natural and nutritious grass-fed beef, lamb, goats, bison, poultry, pork, dairy and other wild edibles. This website:

  • Provides comprehensive, accurate information about the benefits of raising animals on pasture.

  • Links consumers with local suppliers of all-natural, delicious, grass-fed products.

  • Provides a marketplace for farmers who raise their livestock on pasture from birth to market and who actively promote the welfare of their animals and the health of the land.
