As Joel Salatin says in the new solution-based documentary American Meat, it’s time to “know your farmer and just completely opt out of the system”–the factory farm system. American Meat is an important film for our time because it showcases farmers who are committed to raising animals with care, and with respect. Featuring Joel Salatin, and his son Daniel Salatin, Chuck Wirtz and Dr. Fred Kirschenmann the film shows how they’re committed to this philosophy and that not only is it possible to feed the world this way, but it’s also quite profitable.
Yes, it’s time to go back to our roots when it comes to food and discover the joy of eating food from a farmer that you know and trust. Find a local screening or host one yourself at American Meat! You can also buy the documentary DVD and add it to your farm food movie collection.
