What's Your Beef? 

More grass-fed fodder

Did the article on grass-fed beef whet your appetite? There are lots of ways to learn more about the topic at a few upcoming events.

The Garden Café at the Stepping Stone Wellness Center in Lyndonville will offer a series of three classes on preparing grass-fed beef. On April 20, the focus will be on utilizing ground beef; April 27 will center on roasts. On May 4, the instructor will cover steaks.

The two-hour classes are $40 each, or $99 for all three. Cost includes the full meal and an informational packet to take home.

On April 24, Doug Flack of Flack Family Farm will give a seminar and tasting called "Local Foods and You" at the St. Albans Free Library. Call 524-1507 to register.

Want to get more Flack? Check out "ReGenerations," a two-part show on Vermont Public Television. The first segment, which airs on Wednesday, April 18, at 7:30 p.m., shows how Abe Collins and Ted Yandow of St. Albans partnered up to "turn a grain-fed dairy farm into a grass-fed operation." The second segment, premiering on April 25 at 7:30 and featuring Flack, is about how "local food production and the regeneration of farms are critical for a sustainable future." The press release calls him "a champion of the nutritional value to humans of the fat from the meat and milk of grass-fed cattle."
