The food freedom bug has turned heads at PBS. Food Forward TV is an upcoming series that basically showcases people striving to dramatically transform the way we eat in the United States. “Food rebels” and outliers, so to speak.
Across 50 cities, it showcases farmers, chefs, scientists, fishermen and ranchers with ways that deviate from the “conventional” large agricultural and food system. Some of their methods emulate traditional farming – which only seem unique to newer generations – but most are new, innovative solutions to feed the world.
Will the world pay attention?
Food Forward TV comes to PBS in September – watch the preview below.
The featured pioneers are safely upping nutrition for humans, animals and the soil and eliminating losses through exorbitant waste by utilizing the ecology of the whole farm instead of large-scale compartmentalization. You may recognize some faces – one of them is Mark McAfee of Organic Pastures Dairy who has taken on the FDA for its aggression toward small, fresh milk farmers and its adamant ban on interstate sales.
