Get to Know Your Vendor: Zatkovich Pastures

One of our newest seasonal vendors, Daniel Zatkovich, and his family Leanne, Afton, and Tom Zatkovich, will be at the  Saturday market with a variety of pasture raised meat products (including chicken, beef and eggs).  Dan’s website explains he raises animals “in a humane, ‘happy’ manner with as much opportunity as possible to express natural behavior.”  The benefits he sites are nutritionally superior meat, higher in vitamin C, E, beta carotene, with a better balanced omega fatty acid profile. Also, pastured chicken has 21% less fat than the traditional factory chicken, with less environmental impacts, according to Dan and other sources (http://www.sustainabletable.org/issues/pasture/).  We welcome another great vendor to the Chelsea Farmers Market!
