On a Meat Mission: Marin Rancher David EvansDownload audio (MP3)
On Thursday, Pt. Reyes cattle rancher David Evans announced that his company would purchase Rancho Feeding Corp., the embattled Petaluma slaughterhouse that recently recalled nearly 9 million pounds of beef. Evans, founder of Marin Sun Farms and a fourth-generation rancher, says keeping the plant open is critical to the survival of small Bay Area beef producers. We'll talk to Evans about his vision for a local, sustainable food system, and about challenges like the current California drought and the consolidation of the meat industry.
