“Between 1970 and now, the U.S. has lost 88% of its dairy farms.” — David Gumpert, author of The Raw Milk Revolution: Behind America’s Emerging Battle Over Food Rights
Isn’t that a scary quote? Scary and sad.
Why have we lost 80% of our dairy farms in America? How did this happen? Why did this happen?
If you want to know why, you need to see this movie.

Director, Kristin Canty
When Kristin started learning about what’s been happening to our family farms in America, she was so horrified, she felt she had to do something. So she made this movie.
The thing that’s so amazing about Kristin is she is not a trained director. She never went to film school. But is was passionate enough about protecting our food and our farms that she did whatever it took and she made a movie. It’s a stunning achievement.
What’s even more stunning is how good the film is. I haven’t seen the whole thing, but I’ve seen enough to know that it’s fantastic.
Read more about how she made the movie in this excellent post by Kimberly Hartke at Hartke is Online!
I believe that everyone in America should see this film. You won’t believe it until you see it. What’s going on across our nation is shocking and our citizens need to know about it.
