George Pataki Is Wearing Two Hats: Presidential Candidate and Cattleman

An artisanal beef stand with a political back story has shaken up New York farming circles since it opened last month at a Manhattan greenmarket.

Since June, the stand has been selling skirt steaks, stew meat and burger beef every Saturday at Abingdon Square Greenmarket, a farmers’ market at a small park in Manhattan’s West Village.
