Local Meat, Lower Impact
Did you know that pasture-raised beef can be carbon-negative? Neither did we! Charley Cummings, the founder and CEO of Walden Local Meat, started his business to help New England farmers bring their best cuts right to customers’ doors. His model shows that regenerative agriculture can benefit animal welfare, local economies and the environment, all at the same time.
To kick off the second season of The Stories Behind Our Food, we traveled to snowy Billerica, MA to record this episode and find out how the folks at Walden do what they do – and why. Charley believes the industrial food system contributes to an estrangement between rural and urban, but our growing interest in good food pushes back against that. Can high-quality, sustainably raised meat bring neighbors closer together?
