Out To Pasture focuses on what we can learn about "re-localizing" meat production in New York State by re-examining the period, as late as 1880, when New York was actually a center of the country's meat production. There is a personal twist here: It was our host's great, great, great grandfather who played a large role in de-localizing New York's meat production, when he began shipping refrigerated beef by rail from Chicago.
