Tereza Coraggio interviews Nicolette Hahn Niman.
She was the environmental lawyer under Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. who headed up his hog campaign to take on Big Agriculture and factory farming.
She’s a regular speaker at environmental conferences and food events. She’s now married to the founder of Niman Ranch and has become a rancher in Northern California. Her informative and highly-readable book, Righteous Porkchop, shows her intrepid investigation into big business animal farms and the devastating effect on both the animals and on water and air pollution. The following interview, however, focuses on her new role, where she’s directly involved in animal husbandry, and picks up in some places where the book leaves off.
