How Social Media took on Big Meat and changed the Meat system forever.

I recently was asked to head a panel discussion for the Good Festival in March. The panel was suppose to be titled "Sustainable Meat" I am big believer in sustainability and its fundamental definition of a system that “meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs." However, Local meat has taken a much more aggressive posture in the last 5 years and evolved well beyond the simple title of sustainable meat. simply put, I believe the local meat system has tipped and gone mainstream. What once was called Sustainable local meat, I now call Meat 2.0. Therefore, I called the panel Local Meat 2.0. To understand 2.0 lets take a look at 1.0.

Meat 1.0 started roughly in 1993 when certain farmers and localvore leaders at the time (although they didn't know it) felt that "Good Meat" was raised primarily on grass and solely on grass in lush green pastures under blue skies. Unlike "Feedlot Cattle" they were not fed grain or antibiotics or hormones or steroids to accelerate their growth but to just feed the animals what they are suppose to eat all their lives - Grass! Turned out the meat actually tastes better, its more healthy, its more humane to the animals and supports a sustainable environment. An industry was born.

From 1993 to roughly 2006, this notion of Grass-Fed meats grew rapidly within the bohemian and localvore communities. The American Grass-fed Association was started by Dr Patty Whisnant who later grew her Rain Crow ranch Grass-Fed Beef business to a multi-million dollar powerhouse in the midwest. In Local Meat 1.0 buying decision were simple and composed of local meat lovers whose buying decisions were based on several simple factors:

"Meet the Farmer "

1.Buy direct From Farm by going to the Farm
2.Sustainability
3.Goodness - Tastes Great!
4.Humane Treatment of the animals
5.Trust the Farmer
6.You get to pet a pony

In 2006 two things happened: Michael Pollens book, the Ominores delima became a best seller, changing the intellectuals in the countries notion of just what kind of meat we might be eating and what it is doing to the environment. This spurred the USDA to recognize local sustainable meat, specifically Grass-Fed as a bonifide product and thus labeled it such.

March 8th, 2008 was the year I feel, Local Meat Tipped! You will see by the slide presentation the factors that led up to this Big Meat disrupting tipping point moment. The final deadly blow, that shock the nation, was Diane Sawyers ABC expose on the now famous "Pink Slime" The headlines that appeared in the media was, I believe" Pink Slime Found In 70% Of Supermarket Ground Beef In ABC Investigation." Ouch.
