I totally agree! In fact I was thinking late last night that I'd missed the part about how to me it's not just about ethically raised meat - it's about ethically using meat and that's about using as much of the animal for food, and the rest for supporting nature. A discussion with Dr Redhawk about humus included comments from him that the presence of an animal carcass in compost is important. Joe Jenkin's Humanure Handbook also talks about using similar techniques to responsibly turn a carcass into quality compost without risk to the ground water.
Seeing value in the parts of animals that are seen as waste by others is also important to me - the bits we don't eat are feeding the soil life, they are not seen as waste here.
First off, there are no stupid questions on permies! We're all here to learn and explore options!
Okay this might sound a stupid question, but hear me out. Is hunting wild animals an ethic source?
There were millions of the little blood suckers. But thanks to this tiny ad, I wasn't bitten once.
