Excerpted from The Ethical Butcher by Berlin Reed

A Good Life
The animal lived as nature intended, with access to space, fresh air, and the natural diet appropriate for its species.
A Good Death
The animal was treated with respect up until its final breath. Death came swiftly.
A Good Butcher
Only a skilled hand cut the meat, to maintain its integrity, to obtain the most meat, and to keep valuable cuts intact.
A Good Chef
Only a talented cook dignified the animal and all whose labor brought it to that point.
