I USA pågår ett tyst krig mot naturbönder som vill framställa alternativproducerade mjölkprodukter och naturbetat kött. Oannonserat dyker det upp poliser och myndighetspersonal som beslagtar djur och produkter. Naturfarmare hotas med böter och fängelse. Denna dokumentärfilm “Farmageddon” vill kasta ljus över, dels övergreppen som pågår, men även på fördelarna med naturligt producerad mat per se.

Kristin Canty is the Director/Producer of Farmageddon; The Unseen War on American Family Farms. She is a first-time film maker, small farm advocate, fresh milk drinker and a mom. One of her children was ridden with multiple allergies and asthma as a pre-schooler, and when medications couldn’t help him, she found that raw milk helped him recover. Since then, she has tried to buy most of her family’s food directly from local, organic farms. When Kristin learned that farmers and co-ops all over the country were increasingly getting raided by the government, she set out to make a film about it. She hopes that when people see it, it can change the tide of public pressure so that our government stops harassing and adding costly burdens to our small, organic farmers. Kristin lives in Concord, Massachusetts with her husband, four children, two dogs , two cats and 11 chickens.
