Pressestimmen"In an era of growing concerns about our food, Gene Logsdon offers a practical way to steer American agriculture in a direction that ensures a livelihood for family farmers, takes care of the land, and provides fresh, healthy food for all. Over the years, industrial farming methods and grain-based livestock operations have led to the decline of family farm agriculture. All Flesh is Grass is a how-to manifesto for family farmers and food activists alike committed to taking back control of our food and farms." - Willie Nelson, President and Founder, Farm Aid"All Flesh is Grass explains the immense benefits of taking our livestock out of the feedlots and raising them in a natural setting on their native diets. It's all there: the history, the politics, the practices, and the passion." - Jo Robinson, creator of www.eatwild.com
