Really well done thought provoking movie!
karen dellelo
Very sad that we have a government now targeting small family farms and ruining these farmers.
P.Ward
Where it could have just been a very depressing story, there's hope here too.

We saw Farmageddon - The Unseen War on American Family Farms last fall, when it was in a local movie theatre. It's produced and directed by Kristin Canty, a mom of four, who couldn't understand why the healthy food she wanted to buy for her family, was so hard to find.

Kristin said, about why she made this film, "I decided I needed to tell this story. My goal was to let these honest farmers using centuries old farming practices tell their side of the stories. So, I set out to make a film. Farmageddon is in no way meant to convince anyone to drink raw milk, or eat grass fed beef, but rather an argument to allow those that want to make those choices to do so. It is simply about freedom of food choice. The government needs to stop harassing small farmers, private food buying clubs and co- ops without food freedom.... we are not free."

From the movie's website, "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."

"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.

I saw this film in DC at the premiere and I'm looking forward to getting the DVD to share.

This film is an amazing eye-opener. I'm a big supporter of fresh and local food, and respect my farmers. I had no idea what small farms are up against these days, now I do.

Police with flack jackets and guns raiding small family farms, because of raw milk? Sounds more like a science fiction film rather than a documentary, but it's true. I did some fact checking on the Farm-to-Consumer Legal Defense Fund website.

Most folks I know, value and trust the fresh food from our neighboring farmers, and don't need the government stamp of approval to know that it's good (or safe) to eat.

I mean come on, because raw milk from an inspected dairy crossed state lines, it's suddenly an imminent health hazard? That part made me angry. What a waste of food, money and time! That inspector looked like she was raised during the depression. How on earth did she let all that milk be wasted?

And, what about that Pennsylvania Amish farmer? They wiped out his store,(not once but three times!), put all the food in a hot truck, and dumped bleach on it in a landfill?

I read that in Pennsylvania 6 out of 100 people go HUNGRY, and their ag department would rather throw perfectly good food out, because the farmer doesn't have a license?

I hope you watch this film, become an advocate for food rights and small farms, and may even try a glass or gallon of raw milk. I found mine on the Real Milk website.

We've got to change the laws so that they encourage, protect and support these small family farms.

Americans are beginning to realize the myriad problems with the industrial food system, and many people are turning to local farmers for alternatives. But the farmers who work to produce healthy local foods face serious challenges from government bureaucracies that work for the interests of the industrial food system.

Farmageddon is an important movie that shows some of the challenges these farmers face, and why every person needs to become an active citizen, not just a consumer, if we want real change in our food system.

"If people let government decide what foods they eat and what medicines they take, their bodies will soon be in as sorry a state as are the souls of those who live under tyranny." Thomas Jefferson uttered this prediction 200 years ago and here we are, living it. Americans are the sickest, fattest nation in the world. The highest cancer rate. On. The. Planet.

How did we get to this point? Well, partly by letting the government decide what foods we eat and what medicines we take! Partly by the change from an agrarian (farm and land based) society to an industrialized one. We *escaped* the farm life and went to work in factories and offices. Now, because we have removed ourselves so many degrees of separation from the production of our own food, we've also given power to "authorities" to tell us what we can eat, where it can come from, who can produce and sell it, and on and on... ad nauseum.

The FDA and USDA have been leading the population like silly sheep to our own demise. They have allowed genetically engineered seeds to be grown and distributed without any studies to determine safety AND without any labeling to allow people to choose for themselves. Corn has now been labeled by the EPA *as an insecticide* and you are eating it! Wheat, corn, soy and milk have been altered from their natural state and allergies and disease are on the rise as a direct result. Kraft, Coca Cola and Walmart formulated their products differently for distribution in *other* countries because those countries do not allow the experimentation with their population that the U.S. does.

The question that naturally arises is "How do I feed myself and my family good food, real food, the food that nourished mankind for all past generations up to this point?" So, you do some research.
