This week on The Farm Report, host Erin Fairbanks welcomes Nicolette Hahn Niman, author of "Defending Beef: The Case for Sustainable Meat Production" to the show. Kicking off the show talking about Nicolette's background and how she became involved with ranching cattle, she elaborates exactly why beef is in need of defending. Nicolette's take is that for decades it has been nearly universal dogma among environmentalists and health advocates that cattle and beef are public enemy number one. She asks if the matter really so clear cut? In "Defending Beef," Nicolette argues that cattle are not inherently bad for either the Earth or our own nutritional health. In fact, she discusses with Erin that properly managed livestock play an essential role in maintaining grassland ecosystems by functioning as surrogates for herds of wild ruminants that once covered the globe. Grass-fed, small-scale farms can and should become the basis for American food production, replacing the factory farms that harm animals and the environment. While no single book can definitively answer the thorny question of how to feed the Earth’s growing population, Nicolette explains that, whatever the world’s future food system looks like, cattle and beef can and must be part of the solution. Tune in for an interesting discussion! This program was brought to you by Whole Foods Market.

"There are many wonderful water intensive foods but that suggestion you hear over and over again that beef is some water guzzler and some outlier, that's just not true." [20:00]

"I think the reason why beef has been the favorite target of sensational journalism because it was the most consumed meat in the United States and considered the most desirable." [23:00]

This week on The Farm Report, host Erin Fairbanks is bringing up the subject of heritage breed rabbits with Taylor Naples, Chef de Cuisine at Craft, and Patrick Beck, owner of New England Grass Fed. New England Grass Fed is dedicated to producing the finest 100% grass fed beef, pork and silver fox rabbit with the help of their local grazing partners. Their animals are raised with respect and grown to their highest potential, while accepting the gift of animals' lives with gratitude. Patrick specifically raises the silver fox breed of rabbit and shares with Erin the story behind this decision as well as other interesting facts about this heritage breed. Craft is just one of the many restaurants that New England Grass Fed supplies rabbit for, and Taylor explains that the product is superior in quality due to the way Patrick raises the animals. After the break, Taylor takes listeners through a step by step process of preparing the rabbit served at Craft as well as his thoughts on other preparations. Patrick shares plans for the future of the silver fox breed and the sustainable nature of harvesting rabbit. This program was brought to you by Heritage Foods USA.

"I saw rabbit as a totally understated protein absolutely absent from the line up of most chefs." [3:50]

"They [silver foxes] are special rabbits and we are honored to have them in the hands of someone like Taylor." [23:40]

--Patrick Beck on The Farm Report

"Rabbits and mustards go together very well... it's a more fun chicken." [21:15]

This week on What Doesn't Kill You, host Katy Keiffer is speaking with Ted Genoways who is the editor-at-large at OnEarth, the magazine of the Natural Resources Defense Fund. He has also contributed to a number of other magazines such as The Atlantic, Bloomberg Businessweek, Harper's, Mother Jones, The New Republic, and Outside. His new book, "The Chain: Farm, Factory, and the Fate of Our Food" was published this month by Harper Collins and joins Katy in a discussion on labor concerning large companies like Hormel. Complete with thoughts on union busting and the rise of undocumented workers, Ted goes on to explain how even the ACLU came to be involved with the Hormel ordeal. Tune in to hear highlights from Ted's book. This program was brought to you by White Oak Pastures.

"So the workers showed up - they found that the processes were not easier, they were in fact more repetitive and there was a rash of carpal tunnel syndrome and tennis elbow and other repetitive stress injuries." [8:02]
