The other day my mother was unpacking her CSA basket (shout out to Lufa Farms here in Montréal) when my sister-in-law commented on the meat she’d gotten from a local, ostensibly sustainable farm.
“I heard that they mistreat their animals and the meat is not as pure as they say”
It got us wondering if we were being naïve in thinking that there is such a thing as “virtuous meat”. If you’ve ever paid a premium for fancy supposedly sustainable meat you may at some point have thought to yourself "is it worth it?".
