A better way to grow

The introduction of large scale farming geared towards world production on the shoulders of a relatively small number of producers, was a recipe for a degraded and highly travelled food supply. This movement virtually guaranteed that food quality would become compromised, and the people of this planet would suffer as a result.

However, if we get back to our roots and begin supporting smaller scale farmers or produce even a small percentage of our own food supply, we can start to alleviate the negative impact industrialized farming has created for our health. A planet with fewer chemicals, pollution, “strip mining”, and genetic alterations will undoubtedly make a positive impact for people, and this can be achieved through small scale food production.
