Earlier this week I went on a two-day jaunt to a farm near Thornbury, Ont., courtesy of the team behind the Canadian launch of the Australian wine label Ladies Who Shoot Their Lunch (got that?). The goal, of course, was to shoot our lunch, then skin, clean, cook and eat it. Alas, the birds outwitted us, but we enjoyed a beautiful, crisp fall morning, and some frozen ducks who’d met their demise earlier.
I’m not a hunting advocate, but after this trip, I see the merit in it for sustenance purposes. You don’t get much more locavore than heading down to the local pond for lunch. And waste is minimized as well, no packaging and everything that’s not eaten is compostable.
