Eating thankfully and mercifully this Thanksgiving

After watching an excellent overview of the intersection of faith and the humane treatment of animals called Eating Mercifully, produced by the Humane Society of America’s Animals and Religion division, I’m beginning to examine how we can eat only meat that is raised humanely. It’s hard work and it costs more. Watch the video and you’ll try, too.

This all has me asking about what to do at the biggest meat treat of the year, the Thanksgiving meal. There are not many turkey producers who are treating their birds humanely. I found an article on one, marketed under the name POPS FARM. Looking for more.

Think hard about this one; watch the trailer; get the video. Start the journey.
