Today we are on the road to Marrickville in Sydney’s Inner West. While that doesn’t sound very rural – my guest spends a lot of time on farms. As the owner of Feather and Bone, a butchery of ethically sourced meats, she personally visits all her suppliers ensuring a short, traceable and transparent supply chain. Laura Dalrymple knows how these animals are raised and how they are slaughtered. It’s not an easy conversation to have but Laura is passionate about ensuring her customers know the truth about meat. She hopes education leads us all to choose mindfully and therefore reduce waste.
