I don’t eat veal all that often, but when I do, I make sure that it’s from a ranch that has allowed their stock to romp freely in the open pasture and consume grass along with the mother’s milk. Thankfully, we have several such purveyors here in Virginia, and the end result is superlative and far more flavorful than that of “commercially-raised” veal.
