Back to the Land … Again| 56mins
Director: Gretta Wing Miller | Producer: Aarick Beher
Focus Years: 2006 | Country: United States
The way our food is grown impacts our personal health, the health of the environment; even foreign trade policies far removed from our dinner tables. American corporate farm practices have increasingly become the subject of exposé, often to the shock and horror of the viewing public. At the same time, organic agriculture has become a thriving economic market presence, with sales growing at a rate of 20 percent per year, and demand for organic food is now exceeding production. “Back To The Land ... Again” presents the state of the art of organic agriculture today by highlighting the work and dedication of a collection of Wisconsin farmers. Wisconsin boasts more organic dairy farms than any other state, and in Vernon County there are more organic farms than in any other county in America. Vernon County Wisconsin is also home to the country’s largest, and only farmer-owned, organic producers’ cooperative, the Organic Valley Family of Farms.
