Nicholas Kristof tackles factory farms

(article, Culinate staff)

New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof is in town this week — Portland, that is — or maybe better put, he's on the outskirts of town, visiting in Yamhill, Oregon, where he grew up on a farm. In his column Thursday, "A Farm Boy Reflects," Kristof highlights Proposition 2, which would ban factory farms in California. We think the column's a must-read — no matter where you live — for its descriptions of farm life and its hard look at the laws that govern the business of meat.
