The following is a quote from 5th generation farmer Troy Roush from the film FOOD, Inc. In the film, he was very emotional as he spoke these powerful words…
You have to understand that we farmers… we’re going to deliver to the market place what the market demands. If you want to buy $2 milk, your going to get a feed block in your back yard, it’s that simple.
People have got to start DEMANDING good wholesome food of us and WE’LL DELIVER. I promise you we’re very ingenious people. WE’LL DELIVER, that’s all I have to say.
I was moved by a few of the FOOD, Inc. participants, people who see where we’re headed and see that we’re all on a bad path. Joel Salatin was one and Troy was another. It’s a shame people like Joel and Troy aren’t in charge of food policy.
