The U.S. Department of Agriculture already imposes standards on meat quality, be it USDA prime, choice or select. But those standards don't tell a consumer anything about the meat's origin. The federal labeling regulations do. Additionally, as organic meat departments become more and more popular, and as farm-to-table restaurants become more and more the choice of restaurant-goers, the industry will have to fall in line. As an investor in a new Baltimore farm-to-table restaurant, I am proud to be part of an establishment that tells our guests where our meat came from. In fact, our menu even lists many of the farms that provide the food our guests eat, where the animals are treated in a responsible manner and are raised on open grass before slaughter.
