I was so excited to see Farmageddon among Amazon's recommendations for me. I heard about this film about a year ago, but it has only been shown at select theaters (and none in my area), so I've just been waiting for it to be released. When I noticed yesterday that it was available, my husband and I sat down and watched it then and there!

We both enjoyed this movie. Since we care about real food, we see most of the food-related documentaries that are produced. Even though the topic is interesting to us, it seems that there are usually a lot of overlaps among these sorts of films. Farmageddon features several people that we are already very familiar with (including Sally Fallon, Mark McAfee, and Joel Salatin), so I was prepared for the movie to be pretty similar to other movies we've seen. I was surprised (and impressed) that it was actually pretty different!

Although Farmageddon does talk about the virtues of good food, etc, that really isn't the focus of this movie. Instead, this movie talks a lot about choice, and allowing other people to do what they're doing. The movie presents several recent examples of instances where the government has basically gone after small farmers, where no threat existed, and they have lied and done illegal things. Government agents bully small farmers, and threaten them, and they illegally seize equipment and animals to prevent the farmers from farming.

It's pretty amazing. The story that really stood out to me was about this family that had dairy sheep. The sheep were all imported, and they had been through a ton of tests, and they were healthy and had no risk factors at all...but government agents killed them all, claiming that they may have Mad Cow disease.

Our food supply in America is being challenged by government regulation along with our rights to know what is in or not in what we are being sold and to decide what we choose to eat. Watching this film has sent me on a deeper exploration that so far has only yielded one major concern after another about how Big Ag and agencies like the FDA are crossing lines that already are causing damage and stand to cause more and more. Bills are being signed that exempt companies from responsibility for damage they create! Our right have safe food to eat, organic if we choose, is being eroded big time. GMO's, Round Up Ready crops, super weeds and insects resistant to control are just a few of the topics that pop up when even the most cursory look into these issues is begun. I'm no activist, but when it comes to safe, unadulterated food that is nutritious for us and our children, we all need to raise our voices in a mighty cry.

Just like Big Box stores put small businesses out of business, the same thing is happening to farmers and local food growers, reaching all the way down to home gardeners who sell at local farmers markets.

We CANNOT stay asleep at the wheel. Food is a universal issue that should be a concern to everyone on the planet, but especially in America and Canada, the ONLY nations who allow GMO food. Go find out why. Your life and freedom depend on it.

I can't believe the tyranny that exists here in America as far as what we want to eat. Farmageddon is a film that shows the public just how onerous the regulations are for small farmers. Swat teams coming terrorizing families at the crack of dawn? Weapons drawn? And over what? Raw milk. That's right, the same stuff the mothers feed their newborns, that cats feed their kittens, that all mammals feed their babies. Yet the government sends in swat teams to shut down farmers who dare to sell it to us? If I hadn't seen it with my own eyes, I wouldn't have believed it.

It's enough to make you think that there's a conspiracy to take away our God-given right to feed ourselves. Okay, enough of my rant on personal freedom and responsibility. Here's what the film is about.

A young mother finds her young boy allergic to just about everything. After taking out the carpet, drapes and forgoing any pets, and putting her child on pharmaceuticals to no affect, Kristin Cantry hears that raw milk will help. She quickly does her research and then drinks it herself to see if she suffers any ill-effects. Finally, Kristin gives the milk to her son, along with only organic food, grass-fed meat, and no processed foods. A miracle occurs. Her son loses his allergic reaction to life and gets better. It turns out that raw milk contains the enzymes our guts needs to process food.

Of course there's always a curse that goes along with a blessing, and what Kristin learns is that the small, organic farmers providing this miracle for her son, are being harassed by the government. Why? Because when a person gets sick from food, never from a small farm, only from large agrifarms, all farmers must pay to the point that sheep are killed over mad-cow disease.

This is a really well-made film (I was shocked at how well-made, because the filmmaker was not a filmmaker before she made Farmageddon) that tells its stories and communicates its information and message powerfully and succinctly. It's both educational and inspiring.

The stories Farmageddon tells are the stories that NEED to be told - ones that tell the truth about the corruption in the food and agriculture industries in the United States. Until more people start telling their stories, the oppression and corruption will continue. We need more many, many more films like Farmageddon.
