What's the beef with beef‪?‬ Green Bites

    • Food

Do you think a vegan diet will save the world?  This episode might make you think again.
We meet Sligo farmer and artist Clive Bright, whose 120 acre organic farm raises 100% grass-fed beef for Clive’s direct-to-customer company The Rare Ruminare. Clive has transformed his farm from standard dairy, complete with spraying and fertilisers, to the mob-grazing system he uses today, where trees play a vital role in improving his pastures.  He’s been certified organic for six years.
Clive believes a truly sustainable food system necessarily includes livestock.  In revolutionising his approach to farming, he says he's managed to insulate his livelihood against the commodity market and a food system he sees as broken.
