Episode Description:

(No animals or meat products are portrayed in this program). When new regulations required Salt Spring Island's meat producers to take their animals off-island for processing, local production plummeted nearly in half. In response, the Salt Spring Agricultural Alliance obtained grants to create a local meat processing facility for this important local food product. Chair Anne Macey gives a tour of the facility before it was put into use — from animal holding pens to humane harvesting, processing, meat cutting and packaging. This small local operation is a far cry from the enormous inhumane confined animal feedlot operations (CAFOs) where most meat is processed. []
