Chapel Hill Restaurant Supports More Humane and Sustainable Farmers
Carolina 1663 announced it will be adding products from local sustainable farmers to its menu. The Humane Society of the United States praises Carolina 1663, located within the Sheraton Chapel Hill, for giving conscientious travelers access to alternatives to factory farms.
Ches McLane, executive chef at Carolina 1663, said: “We are committed to using the local bounty that North Carolina provides and giving our guests the most humane and sustainable product possible. We’re proud to add products that adhere to higher animal welfare standards to our menu such as pastured pork from Wilson, North Carolina-based Nature’s Farm and grass-fed beef from nearby Harris-Robinette Beef, which raises all of its cattle exclusively on pasture. We are committed to adding more local products as they come available.”
The HSUS advocates compassionate eating – or the Three Rs: “reducing” or “replacing” consumption of animal products, and “refining” our diets by choosing products from sources that adhere to higher animal welfare standards. The HSUS supports those farmers and ranchers who give proper care to their animals, act in accordance with the basic ethic of compassion to sentient creatures under their control, and practice and promote humane and environmentally sustainable agriculture.
