Understanding the Provenance of Meat, session 3 of 6 in the Provenance: You Are What You Eat series gets underway on May 5th at 6:00 pm.

At tonight’s event, Anthony Nicalo will be joined by Jason Pleym, founder of Two Rivers Specialty Meats, a purveyor of fine meats that are free of antibiotics, hormones and chemical free additives.
