Summary "Within the last half century, our agricultural and food industries have changed more than ... ever before. New technologies and scientific ingenuity have given rise to genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and other man-made foods. People have begun to raise concerns about the safety of GMOs in our food supply, given their incredible dominance in a large portion of our diets. Traditional organic farmers have been under constant attack by large corporate farming interests who seek to monopolize the farming industry. This Of the Land film looks at our current food supply system as well as a variety of smaller, organic options available to consumers who want to support more sustainable and healthy farming methods."--DVD container.
