Sheep Philosophy

Another piece of yesterday’s adventure included a trip out to The Yarn Tree in Brooklyn with my mom to buy some more roving for her scarves. Turns out The Yarn Tree is now also selling meats that are locally sourced, additive/chemical free, etc. We got talking about meats as my mom and dad have begun getting theirs from local farms in New Hampshire — the most recent was a half a pig — and so are into this whole localvore movement. I turned around and spotted this sign on the wall and had to take a picture.

I think that that could sum up a portion of the Pokorny philosophy of life! Interestingly the owner of The Yarn Tree has a large scale project of her own with Yo Yo Ma’s Silk Road efforts — might not be a bad idea to tell him about the yurt!

  1. Interesting….I never understood the whole lamb eating philosophy. Why don’t folks wait until they’re full grown so that there’s more wool and meat? 🙂

  2. Hi again!
    Some people do wait, it just depends on how they like their meat to taste — a helpful resource can be found here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lamb_and_mutton

    My family has the sheep over to our farm, they eat the meadows and hang out for a while and then some of them we eat. Lamb is more tender than adult sheep are — known as mutton. It’s just a preference.
