To Meat, Or Not To Meat: Vegan Gene Baur And Bison Stews


We're in the midst, I believe, of a burgeoning food movement where people are going to farmers markets more regularly, they're supporting community supported agriculture programs, community gardens, and the more that that happens, the more we're going to see factory farms pushed away.

That's Gene Baur, president and co-founder of Farm Sanctuary. He stops by the Earth Eats studios to talk about how his organization is working to improve living conditions for farm animals.

Meat eaters will enjoy our two recipes today. Chef Daniel Orr is preparing chili and a stew.

The meat of choice in those dishes is bison, and he visits Buffalo Run Farm to see how the animals live.

Before that, Harvest Public Media reports that Roundup-resistant weeds are changing the game for farmers.
