Americans’ right to access fresh, healthy foods of their choice is under attack. Farmageddon tells the story of small, family farms that were providing safe, healthy foods to their communities and were forced to stop, sometimes through violent action, by agents of misguided government bureaucracies, and seeks to figure out why. Why is the FDA raiding small farms with SWAT-type raids? Farmageddon documents the U.S. government’s constant attacks on innocent farmers and consumers in an attempt to protect massive corporate interests.
