Farmageddon – The Truth About the Food and Dairy Industry

https://youtube.com/watch?v=5uah8LBUbfc

Americans’ right to access fresh, healthy foods of their choice is under attack. Farmageddon tells the story of small, family farms that were providing safe, healthy foods to their communities and were forced to stop, sometimes through violent action, by agents of misguided government bureaucracies, and seeks to figure out why.

Filmmaker Kristin Canty’s quest to find healthy food for her four children turned into an educational journey to discover why access to these foods was being threatened. What she found were policies that favor agribusiness and factory farms over small family-operated farms selling fresh foods to their communities. Instead of focusing on the source of food safety problems — most often the industrial food chain — policymakers and regulators implement and enforce solutions that target and often drive out of business small farms that have proven themselves more than capable of producing safe, healthy food, but buckle under the crushing weight of government regulations and excessive enforcement actions.

Farmageddon highlights the urgency of food freedom, encouraging farmers and consumers alike to take action to preserve individuals’ rights to access food of their choice and farmers’ rights to produce these foods safely and free from unreasonably burdensome regulations. The film serves to put policymakers and regulators on notice that there is a growing movement of people aware that their freedom to choose the foods they want is in danger, a movement that is taking action with its dollars and its voting power to protect and preserve the dwindling number of family farms that are struggling to survive.

  1. Wow – great video – appreciate it being posted here. Big issues around small farmers being harassed by government authorities for making and producing real food. I’ve always thought that Big Ag and supermarkets enabled by governments would fight back and try to 1) co-opt the local food movement, and then when that does not work, 2) try and regulate the local food movement out of existence. The reason: it’s too threatening to the mainstream food industry. This US developments may find their way to other countries.

  2. What a great film .what foods do those who are instigating these raids on innocent organic farmers who are providing a health giving product to the public live on , do they not realise they are killing them selves eating junk food and overloading the sickness industry or is the money more inportant than health .Even the people who do the dirty work for these corporate people must realise that what they are doing is proping up a system that will eventually make them sick and suffer pain or do they just dont think. They are the equivalant of the school yard bully shoving their weight around .

  3. Every time you spend money, you’re casting a vote for the kind of world you want.

    The majority of the U.S. citizens casting every day votes that their not care.
    If you care, take your food supply in your own hand or leave the land of the careless.
    The information how to do this is available to all by the Internet.
    Let the careless poisoning them self. I’m fine with that.
