A Lesson in Farming, Classroom to Cafeteria

I photographed a story in April for The New York Times about a school in Hagerstown, Indiana that raises cows that they will eventually slaughter and eat in the cafeteria as part of a class program called “Where’s the Beef?”

It’s an interesting way to save money and also know exactly where your food is coming from. On the flip side— to quote the article —

“But even supporters admit the plan could backfire. What if the cows get loose or die? What if the price of beef plummets? What if pupils grow attached to their assignment and cannot stomach the sight of Honey Bear between two hamburger buns?”
