BAD FARMERS VS GOOD FARMERS?
AMERICAN MEAT documentary is a pro-farmer look at chicken, hog and cattle production in America.
Beginning with a history of our current industrial system, the feedlots and confinement operations are unveiled, not through hidden cameras, but through the eyes of the farmers who live and work there. From there, the story shifts to Polyface Farms, where the Salatin family has developed an alternative agricultural model based on rotational grazing and local distribution. Nationwide, a local-food movement of farmers, chefs, and everyday people has taken root… But could it ever feed us all?
THIS FILM IS FREE !

Light refreshments are available.
