Upcoming Colorado screening of American Meat - a pro-farmer look at chicken, hog and cattle production

From: Katherine C.
Sent on: Monday, February 18, 2013 8:37 PM

Hi Homesteaders, Thought you may want to check out one of these screenings and conversations with farmers... I highly recommend the screening on 2/27, my buddy Brad Buchanan will be talking about his grassfed beef operation. Cheers, Katherine American Meat, the new documentary that takes a pro-farmer look at chicken, hog and cattle production in America, is hosting a special series of screenings in Colorado from February 20th to February 27th.

Earlier this year, American Meat kicked off a nationwide screening tour called the Young Farmer Screening Series. This tour takes place at universities, colleges, agricultural high-schools and FFA chapters with 3 core goals in mind: 1. Thank farmers. 2. Support young farmers. 3. Food choices matter. Information on dates of the screenings in Colorado can be found below and online atAmerican Meat Screenings.

More about the film

Beginning with a history of our current industrial system, the feedlots and confinement operations are revealed, 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?
