Fire Destroys Maveric Heritage Ranch; Help Sought

Slow Food USA has put out a call for donations to help restore Maveric Heritage Ranch in South Dakota, which was nearly destroyed in a fire last week.  The barn burned to the ground killing over 40 rare breed hogs, sows with babies and owner Arie McFarlen's treasured horse.  Arie is a member of the Ark of Taste committee.  You can read her letter about the disaster on the Slow Food USA blog. 

Donations can be made online at or sent to the “Endangered Hog Foundation” in care of Maveric Heritage Ranch Co. at:
