Organic Prairie, the brand of organic meats produced by the same farmer-owned coop as Organic Valley, has premiered a series of grilling how-to videos featuring chef Michel Nischan and Organic Prairie meats
Together with Nischan's recipes and year-round grilling tips for pros and amateurs alike, the videos are posted at http://www.organicprairie.coop, the website and online store for Organic Prairie.
"Organic Prairie is a farmer-owned cooperative of organic family farms with strictly enforced production standards that include pasture-based feeding and human treatment of animals," noted Nischan. "It's what makes their meats taste so good. And to know that Organic Prairie is owned by the farmers who follow these practices give a tremendous purpose to my personal buying decision."
Nischan, known as a leader in the sustainable food movement, has more than 30 years of experience working with local producers and farmers -- a natural fit with Organic Prairie. A two-time James Beard Foundation award winner, Nischan is the owner/founder of Dressing Room: A Homegrown Restaurant, in Westport, Conn., and the CEO of Wholesome Wave Foundation, a nonprofit that provides access to healthy, fresh and affordable, locally grown food.
