June 2, 2012 In the early morning, Gabriel Figueroa, 59, stands in front of the butcher shop he operates with his two sons in La Cruz, Guanajuato, Mexico. Figueroa began milking his own cows years ago, but in 2000, his son came from the United States with a substantial amount of money saved up and helped him open a modern butcher shop. It has since become the main place where people in this and surrounding communities procure their meat. Janet Jarman/For The Washington Post Buy Photo
