The Return of Rare Breeds: How Heritage Livestock Can Lead Us to Greener Pastures.
Jacques, Ben
Orion Afield: Working for Nature and Community, v6 n2 p14-17 Spr 2002
Several New England groups are breeding and marketing "heritage livestock"--older, multipurpose breeds that are hardier and more disease resistant than modern livestock bred for specialized uses. Hancock Shaker Village (Massachusetts)--a historical museum and working farm--will teach visitors about heritage breeds and sustainable agriculture. A related school curriculum, "From Farm to Table," is also being developed. (TD)
