Farm Fresh Film Series Presents "American Meat"


by Patricia Cangelosi

The Doylestown Food Co-Op and the Bucks County Foodshed Alliance are proud to present the latest installment in this year’s Farm Fresh Film Series: American Meat. Join us on Thursday, July 17, at Doylestown’s County Theater to see this enlightening documentary, a pro-farmer look at chicken, hog and cattle production in America. It depicts the current state of the U.S. meat industry, taking an even-handed look at animal husbandry — from feedlots and confinement houses, to the current revolution developing in the industry. Viewers see the development of the local-food movement and the grass-based meat farmers’ work firsthand through the farmers’ eyes.meat.jpg

Four farmers are featured:
• Joel Salatin of Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley. His farm services more than 3,000 families, 10 retail outlets and 50 restaurants.

• Daniel Salatin, Joel’s son. He’s been farming for most of his life and began a pastured rabbit enterprise at age seven, which continues today.

• Chuck Wirtz, a lifelong farmer based in West Bend, IA. He and family members operate a farrow-to-finish commodity hog operation.

• Dr. Fred Kirschenmann, a longtime leader in sustainable agriculture who, among other notable accomplishments, oversees management of his family’s 2,600-acre certified organic farm in North Dakota.

Come watch... and discover tangible everyday solutions for changing agriculture in America. Tickets are $8 for Doylestown Food Co-Op members and $10 for the general public; all are welcome. The County Theater is located at 20 East State Street, Doylestown, PA. Doors open at 7:00 p.m., the film begins at 7:30 p.m., and a panel discussion will follow. Visit the calendar for updates!
