The Truth About Modern Pork Production

Family farms like this aren't portrayed well in King Corn or Omnivore's Dilemma. Sustainable Family farms like in this video (some larger some smaller) account for 98% of all farms and 85% of all food production. Corporate/Factory/non-Family farms actually only account for 2% of all farms and only 15% of production in ...the US. Activists have cleverly been able to appear 'pro-family farm' and 'pro-sustainability' while actually undermining the tools and technologies that most family farms rely on to produce safe, affordable and sustainable food.
