This month, the Center for Media and Democracy's Food Rights Network launches a new series of interviews with "food & farm heroes." It's easy for an organization dedicated to exposing corporate spin to focus on negative corporate propaganda to the exclusion of all else, but we are surrounded by people who fight corporate agendas in other ways, large and small. Some devote their lives to it.
In the world of food and farming, the contrast between corporate agribusiness "farms" and small, sustainable family farms that, to adapt a phrase of Michael Pollan's, our grandparents would recognize as food-producing places, is especially clear. Among the farmers who live and work in these places, the Food Rights Network would like to feature some of the heroes, farmers who are making an incredible difference in the farming community, on our dinner tables and to the world around them.
The first farmer hero we feature is John Kinsman, a dairy farmer from Lime Ridge, Wisconsin, a pioneer of rotational grazing, a strong proponent of small, diversified agricultural operations, and an activist since the 1970s.
