9780061998454: Righteous Porkchop: Finding a Life and Good Food Beyond Factory Farms

Righteous Porkchop is a searing, and utterly convincing, indictment of modern meat production. The book also brims with hope and charts a practical (and even beautiful) path out of the jungle.”
—Michael Pollan, author of Omnivore's Dilemma and In Defense of Food
 

“[A] necessary book—part memoir, part exposé...its reasoned case for healthy and humane farming practices has the sweet savor of truth.”
O The Oprah Magazine

 

A crusading environmental activist, vegetarian, and lawyer who has worked with Robert Kennedy, Jr. on environment issues, Nicolette Hahn Niman blows the lid off the shocking practices in the pork, meat, and poultry industries in Righteous Porkchop, a Fast Food Nation for the hog trade. Subtitled, “Finding a Life and Good Food Beyond the Factory Farm,” Righteous Porkchop is at once an eye-opening grand tour of Hahn Niman’s battles with the industrial farming conglomerates, a guide to avoiding unhealthy meats, and a very personal story of  one woman’s reawakening.

Book Description:

Nicolette Hahn Niman is the smiling face of conscientious eating--righteous, but never self-righteous. With warmth and an engaging plainspokenness, she persuasively makes the case that activism bears results, that humane farmers are happier farmers, and that compassionate carnivore' is not an oxymoron. -- David Kamp, author of The United States of Arugula

From the Back Cover:

Asked to head up Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s environmental organization's "hog campaign," Nicolette Hahn Niman embarked upon a fascinating odyssey through the inner workings of the “factory farm” industry. Whatshe discovered transformed her into an intrepid environmental lawyer determined to lock horns with the big business farming establishment. She even, unexpectedly, found love along the way.

A searing account of an industry gone awry and one woman’s passionate fight to remedy it, Righteous Porkchop chronicles Niman’s investigation and her determination to organize a national reform movement to fight the shocking practices of industrial animal operations. She offers necessary alternatives, showing how livestock farming can be done in a better way—and she details both why and how to choose meat, poultry, dairy, eggs, and fish from traditionally farmed sources.
