Video: Oregon Sheep Farmer Says 'Eat Less Meat'

The way we eat seems to be in constant flux: eat no meat, eat lots of meat, everyone has their opinion. But when a family that actually raises sheep for meat suggests we change our meat consumption, that's pretty interesting.

Such was the case at Magnolia Farm, located on the rolling grassy hills near Riddle, Oregon, where Elissa raises her sheep with such love and attention that each death is a challenge. And the price of this coddled meat makes it a treat for all but a few.

We filmed this short video on our way across Oregon. Usually episodes are comprised of a couple days of filming; this was just an hour. But the beautiful setting and inspired words made this into a special episode. Watch for a unique farm as well as a recipe for lamb chops.
