"America's farm families"

Public Radio International has an awesome five-part series that features one-hour audiomentaries on different farm families throughout the U.S, called "Five Farms: Stories from American Farm Families."

It addresses key issues: the conflict of yield versus ethics, pesticide use, and the influence of farm conglomerates monopolizing the market. 

The began on April 27, but you can listen to clips by clicking here. Watch a video here.

Farming is a noble and vital profession that is being revitalized not because of a trend, but because the future of the American food, cultural and social system depends on it. I cannot stress how important is that people take back the food industry and begin to realize what they eat. What you put in your body is not only energy, but a vote as a consumer and as a member of a democracy.
