There is a change being made in food production that have individual reaping healthier and energy preserving benefits.
These were people who were operating on a relatively small scale, producing to sell locally, often led by and within a community operation. People who were thinking of the future in what they took out of, and returned to, the land and putting organic, permaculture or biodynamic methods to the fore.
Their practices were low in energy demands and low in intervention, whilst high in animal welfare. Everything that factory farming is not. In short these were people who were passionate and committed, and living an activist life to give the rest of us choice.
