Green Your St. Patrick's Day: Organic Corned Beef

CowsMar. 17 is St. Patrick's Day! This week's tips, then, are about how to celebrate that greenest of holidays in the greenest of ways.

Tip #2: Buy organic, local corned beef.

Although not traditional Irish cuisine, corned beef has become a St. Patrick’s Day staple for North Americans. If you plan to serve it up — with cabbage, of course — buy your beef from an organic producer who practices sustainable ranching methods. You can also visit your local farmers' market to find beef raised in your area; often, eating local is even eco-friendlier than eating organic.

Tell us: What's your favorite source for eco-friendly meat?
