Posted in MEAT POLITICS with tags , , on July 27, 2008 by chomposaurus

From the WSJ:

Forget the golf-course community or the manicured subdivision. A number of developers are now offering homes on working farms.

Catering to Americans’ desire to live “green,” developers around the country are creating communities on or adjoining farms, pitching views of sorghum fields, grazing livestock, and local — very local — food, such as eggs residents collect from the property’s henhouse. The communities, however, aren’t necessarily in the boondocks. Some are in suburbs or near cities.

The web spawns blogs about basically everything. For instance: meat-eating. So, of course, there are many excellent writers working on the topic on eating well, whether that means eating organic, eating local, eating slow or just eating less. Here’s a list of our current seven favorite blogs about eatin’ good and eatin’ good for you.

Sustainable Table
Creative and original articles about eating organic and local food within the confines of modern life. For instance, a recent report talks about the delights of the “Urban Chicken.”

Slow Food
An amazing organization dedicated “to counteract fast food and fast life, the disappearance of local food traditions and people’s dwindling interest in the food they eat, where it comes from, how it tastes and how our food choices affect the rest of the world.”

U.S. Food Policy Blog
The Ethicurean
Two blogs covering the government food policy and media food coverage, with a lot of intelligent commentary.

Local Harvest
This site compiles all the farmers’ markets, family farms and local groceries where you can buy local, organic food. Find some delicious meats near you.

Eat Local Challenge
Besides bringing up many interesting points about eating locally, this blog features a fantastic list of eating-local blogs, which come in handy.

Eat Like Me
This site is creative in a way only the internet allows: you can see what a very healthy, fit, good-looking person eats for every meal, every day. Tons of good ideas, and kind of inspiring.
