Smokery launch film - another inspiring local project

On Friday I went to the launch of The Smokery at Ruskin Mill and heard about their partnership with Tipputs Inn and more - see my film with voices of the people involved: http://stroudcommunity.tv/the-smokery-launch-ruskin-mill/

It would be nice to know where the animal feeds came from to feed up these animals, that are turned into meat.
Is the animal feed made from local produce?
Given that 89% of the resources that go into foods like meat is in their production(11% for transportation) and that meat is many fold more resource greedy than plant food, I wonder how environmentalists can justify eating meat.
And then there is the methane released by dairy cows...

That would make sense for animals that could graze on land unsuitable for crops, or for land in the resting phase of crop rotation, but would that be true for fish farming, or for pig, or chicken farming?
I wonder how much meat the UK could produce using land that fits the above criteria.
