"This Is Not Farming"

Sharuf | Oct 14, 2011 12:31 PM

Oprah's latest "O" magazine (for November) has an excellent and infuriating article about factory farms, where they pack 'em in and let the excrement flow and blow where it may -- rendering nearby areas uninhabitable, and waterways poisoned and dangerous.

The article is on page 190 and doesn't seem to be on the internet yet.

I grew up on a family farm where the animals were handled humanely, the land well cared-for, and the neighbors liked us. I certainly agree with activist Lynn Henning that what she is fighting is "not farming".
