Of Foie and Fairness

by in View All Posts, February 18th, 2009

There’s a fantastic, and balanced, piece in today’s Village Voice about foie gras — the author, Sarah DiGregorio, visited Hudson Valley Foie Gras, the nation’s largest foie gras farm, to make up her own mind about the process; she’s also interviewed veterinarians and advocates on either side. She brought a photographer along with her to document the process as well; a slideshow of his findings can be found here.

Of course meat is controversial, and of course there are ways of both raising meat and choosing meat conscientiously. DiGregorio’s piece is impressive in its fairness to all involved; if you’re a foie fan (and I am), I completely recommend reading the whole thing.
