    Yum: pig and beer, with a side of hypocrisy!

    Eggleston and Eco-Friendly Foods have a reputation that’s perplexing. Here’s a reality check from somebody who worked with them for years:

    First, Bev doesn’t raise all his own animals — he buys most of them from other suppliers — and he hires cheap Mexican laborers to do most of the work at his processing facility. Worse, he doesn’t pay his farmer suppliers with any regularity — as one of them, I should know.

    In other words, he gets the profits and glory (from media attention like this blurb), while us farmers who do the real work get a minimum cut only after months and months of pestering him. Many farmers I know have stopped dealing with him in disgust.

    He’s either an utterly incompetent businessman or a self-aggrandizing charlatan, I can’t decide which. I do know he’s an expert at one thing: marketing.

    There are plenty of other farms in the DC area that sell quality local meats — just check out localharvest.org or similar sites — without the ethical downsides of dealing with a flunky like Bev.

    For all readers of the DC City Blog: TruthSeeker5000 is a disgruntled person who is angry that some years ago he didn’t get his payment from EcoFriendly Foods as fast as he wanted it. That was at a time the company was struggling to establish itself and occasionally had to delay several of its creditors.

    Now, the company has achieved stability — due to the loyal support of many, many customers — and is not just paying farmers on time but paying them a substantial premium above the market price for cattle and pigs.

    You can judge for yourself the quality of the meat they sell at the Memorial Day Patio Pig Roast, and you’ll have a chance to meet and talk with Bev Eggleston himself and form your own opinions as to his honesty, commitment to alternative agriculture and passion for supporting humanely raised, sustainably grown livestock.
