Foie Gras for Locavores
That goose egg flamboyant farmer Tom Culton displays at Monday's Fair Food Local Grower Local Buyer event isn't just for an omelet. His 300-goose gaggle is geared for foie gras production.
But don't go looking for the luxe liver at any of the farmers' markets he frequents. Culton has sold out his entire production to local restaurants.
Tom says the geese, which he regards as among the more intelligent food birds, are being humanely raised. The foie gras will be produced without force feeding.
