Muffins as Contraband 
Confiscated muffins, exploding kombucha and the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development are at the heart of this story by Farm-to-Consumer Legal Defense Fund attorney, Susan Israel.

Kale vs. Cow

Are you frustrated with the anti-meat messages in the media? Are you tired of defending why you eat meat to friends and family?

Several new films vilify all meat eating but don't take into account how the animals were raised. Well, here is an upcoming video project we think you may like: it's called Kale vs. Cow and will dive into the nutritional, environmental, and ethical case for meat. The project is the brainchild of our friend Diana Rodgers of Sustainable Dish, a real food dietitian living on a working organic farm.

Our farmer and homesteader members raise animals outside, where they are encouraged to express their natural instincts, unlike those in the concentrated animal feeding operations (CAFOs). We think there's a huge difference between the two methods, and this film will highlight them.

Early supporters of Kale vs. Cow include Joel Salatin, Chris Masterjohn, Nicolette Hahn Niman, Robb Wolf, Nina Teicholz, Chris Kresser, Lierre Keith, Mark Sisson, Will Harris, and JP Sears. If you'd like to support this film, too, do so HERE! Thank-you gifts include Paleo f(x) tickets, your name in the film credits, and a farm tour.
