Documentary Investigates Family Farming Practices Around the World

Family Farming Practices

 This documentary is encouraging when you consider how much of our food is mass produced.  More and more people are seeking out organic foods and often grow their own.  Home grown food just tastes better and we are secure knowing the exact fertilizers that are being used. 

  •  Eighty percent of the world’s food supply still comes from small family operated farms. These farms also employ about 40 percent of the global workforce
  • As custodians of a majority of the global agricultural resources, family farms are essential players in efforts to strengthen food security and improve the global ecology
  • To investigate the diversity, challenges and benefits of family farming around the world, a group of agronomists visit farmers in India, France, Ecuador, Cameroon and Canada
