"It's beautiful! Good food production should be aesthetically and aromatically, sensually romantic".
~Joel Salatin as quoted in FarmageddonFarmageddon is a new food related documentary revealing how the powerful food industries, through government control, suppress small sustainable farming. The other day I was talking with someone about raising pigs. They told me that because they love animals so much they could never pour love and attention into an animal that was going to be butchered. I find it puzzling that these same people wouldn't think twice about buying bacon from the supermarket without consideration of the deplorable, unnatural life those hogs lived before becoming food. And not only that, but by buying that bacon they are supporting the dismal life of factory raised animals when they could support small farmers who love their livestock. So, even though there is a long list of provocative food related documentaries already out there, we still have a long way to go in educating people about beautiful food from farm to table.
