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.
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.
