Homesteads and Homeschools

Vegetarians believe their diets are better for the environment; this isn't always the case. These diets consist of highly processed foods from the industrial-ag complex that rely on monoculture of 1000s of acres. I talk to Kate Kavanaugh, a former vegetarian who came back to an omnivorous diet, became a butcher and eventually opened her own butcher shop - Western Daughters Butcher Shoppe - in Colorado. We talked about how she came to make this transition, regenerative farming pracatices, and so much more.
