Her visionary efforts in this area have earned her a place among Heritage Radio Network’s collection of Future Food Leaders in 2014.

"Cows were born to roam and graze; hogs were born to root and wallow; chicken were born to scratch and peck. All these are instinctive behaviors that are inborn, and when we create the factory farm environment, we deprive these animals of that opportunity." [14:15]

This week on Snacky Tunes, Greg and guest co-host Carter Adams open the show with the musical stylings of Jonny Lam and then welcome Butcher Tom Mylan from The Meat Hook located in Brooklyn, NY. Hot off the release of The Meat Hook Meat Book, Tom talks about his inspiration behind authoring the cookbook and all that goes into the cookbook process.

Also speaking on the ethics of red meat, Tom gives his take on the timely issue along with up and coming cuts of meat. Later in the program, Greg and Carter talk with Jonny Lam and his band about playing country music and how Jonny has made his mark in the music scene by being an amazing pedal steel guitar player. Tune in for a meaty show with great live music. This program was sponsored by Heritage Foods USA.

"I think that you'll be seeing more hare in probably 5 or 6 years, maybe sooner." [28:15]

"Chefs will look through the price sheet and see what is dirt cheap; a couple years ago it was ox tails, short ribs, pig tails, pig heads. I think that the only territory left is probably beef shank." [29:43]
