In today’s world we’ve become increasingly disconnected from the true sources of food. Modern Carnivore is re-connecting people to healthy meat options and introducing them to a lifestyle of “direct harvest” that includes foraging, fishing and hunting. No experience required.
It’s about promoting a healthier planet and a healthier diet so subscribe today to the newsletter, read a story, watch a video or leave a comment in the forum. And then, get ready to open your eyes to new ways of thinking about that food on your plate.
