This documentary takes you through the process of how food is grown. Many of the ideas are the same as other documentaries like food,inc. and food matters. It discusses how factory farming is harmful to the environment and to our nutrition. This documentary also shows that local farmers are the better bet, but that they are still struggling. It is hard for farmers to sustain their business. Big farms are able to produce more and get more money from the government to run their operations. While small local farmers may be the answer there are too few of them, and it is hard for them to make a good enough living for it to be worthwhile for more people to join into the farming business. This movie shows that there is hope and that things are changing. Small incremental changes, wherever they happen are better that no progress at all.
