  • THE COMPASSIONATE HUNTER'S GUIDEBOOK

    Wild meat, hunted in a responsible way, is one of the most healthful, sustainable foods possible. Depending on how it is done, hunting can be as local, intimate and humane as it gets. And aside from this, it demands the hunter enter a world of awareness, wildness, life and death that we have lost connection to as a culture.

    The Compassionate Hunter's Guidebook is a guide for those that come to the act of hunting with pure intentions, motivated by a desire for healthy food that comes directly from the land where they live. This practical manual suggests that hunting is not a "sport" and the animals whose lives are taken are not "game." It combines a deep, philosophical exploration of the ethics of killing with detailed instructions on every step of the process including:

    • Understanding your prey
    • Tools, techniques and preparation
    • The act of the hunt
    • From forest to table: processing, preserving and preparing your kill

    A unique and comprehensive, fully illustrated guide to the complexity, ethics and spirit of the hunt, The Compassionate Hunter is a must-read for beginning and experienced hunters alike. It will appeal to anyone who wishes to delve more deeply into the complex, humbling and ultimately profound reality of our relationship with the food that nourishes us.

  • THE ETHICAL MEAT HANDBOOK

    Nutrition, environmental impact, ethics, sustainability — it seems like there's no end to the factors we must consider when we think about our food. At the center of the dietary storm is animal-based agriculture. Was your beef factory-farmed or pasture-raised? Did your chicken free range, or was it raised in a battery cage? Have you, in short, met your meat?

    Most efforts to unravel the complexities of the production and consumption of animal protein tend to pit meat eaters and vegetarians against each other. The Ethical Meat Handbook seeks a middle ground, arguing that by assuming full responsibility for the food on our fork, and more importantly, the route by which it gets there, we can make animals an optimal source of food, fiber and environmental management. This hands-on, practical guide covers:

    • Integrating animals into your garden or homestead.
    • Basic butchery: whole animal, primals, subprimals, and end-cuts, including safety and knife skills.
    • Charcuterie: history, general science and math principles, tooling up, and recipes.
    • Culinary highlights: getting creative, preparing sauces, ferments, difficult cuts, and extras.

    Eating diversely may be the most revolutionary and proactive action we can take to ensure the sustainability of our food system. The Ethical Meat Handbook challenges us to take a hard look at our individual dietary choices, increase our self-reliance and at the same time enjoy delicious food that benefits our health and our planet.

  • UNCLE DAVE'S COW

    CLEARANCE: $12.51

    As folks like Michael Pollan and Joel Salatin have been preaching for years, commercial meat production isn't good for the animals, our bodies or the planet. Yet the organic, sustainably raised pork, beef and lamb one finds at supermarkets and specialty stores are often pricey, and the marketing labels can be beyond confusing. What if you just want to eat meat as healthfully and enjoyably as possible, all while sticking to a budget?

    Uncle Dave's Cow: And Other Whole Animals My Freezer Has Known shows you how to find and evaluate local farmers, form a buying group, plan out cuts and quantities, store and preserve your purchases, and dish up an entire animal one part at a time. Author Leslie Miller, a busy Seattle mother who hails from a long lineage of Central Washington farmers, shows readers how to go whole hog (or cow, or goat, or lamb, for that matter) as she takes the reader along on her own educational journey – from the moment she locates and buys her first pig, all the way to her last forkful of tender pulled pork. Miller explores local farmers markets and 4-H fairs, talks to dedicated farmers and butchers, and explains how even her children connect to the cow in the freezer. By sharing her whole-food experiences, she allows readers to connect to the source of their food, while her 45 original recipes show how to cook mouthwatering meals from the abundance of whole animals.

    Written with urban charm and a knife-sharp sense of humor, Uncle Dave's Cow is a friendly and accessible guide to sourcing and eating local meat for parents, foodies, and everyone who wants to learn how to be a well-prepared consumer and cook through to the bone.
