This beautifully written piece highlights the problem endemic in the American approach to industrial farming. An approach that we’ve, more and more, chosen to adopt here.

The writer, James Rebanks, is a sheep farmer in the North of England; this piece was an op-ed in the NYT recently talking about America and a trip he made through Kentucky, but his warning is one that applies to all non-factory farming, non-industrialised combine farmers i.e. the vast majority of them around the world.An English Sheep Farmer’s View of Rural America - NYTimes.com
