'Farmland' takes viewers on a trip to rural America

'Farmland' takes viewers on a trip to rural America | Humane and Sustainable Agriculture | Scoop.it
A new documentary from producer/director James Moll could be validating, enlightening or concerning, depending on your perspective. "Farmland" shares the perspectives of a half-dozen cattle ranchers, vegetable farmers and other rural Americans who operate far from the grocery shelves. For urban America, it is an eye-opening look at the people who produce much of the food we find at the supermarket. For those a little closer to our farmlands, it's a validation of a lifestyle far from the public eye. For Americans in general, it raises important questions that affect us all.

New Survey Shows Egg Carton Confusion Affects Millions Of Americans

The egg-case is in disarray. Lack of federal labeling standards and misuse of category terminology such as “cage-free,” “organic,” and “free range” has led to mass consumer egg carton confusion. According to a recent Kelton Research survey, though 78 percent of Americans think the way hens are raised is important, over 170 million Americans don’t know what the term “cage-free” actually means. Adding to this confusion, more than one-quarter of Americans think “cage-free” and “free range” mean the same thing.*
