welcome to the 21 acres blog

Hi there–Becca here. Though I’ve been moving toward a more plant-based diet, I still eat some kinds of meat–and I, like you, have wondered about how my diet is impacting the planet. In my role as Operations Manager, I’ve had the opportunity to learn from local meat farmers and producers. Here’s a breakdown about local meat’s impacts on our climate.

What if we didn’t have to stop eating meat to save the planet?

Many studies have shown that in order to drastically reduce carbon emissions, Americans need to switch to plant-based diets (often with a tongue-in-cheek comment about cow farts). Does that mean we should all stop eating meat?
