Summary
"Farmageddon is a fascinating and terrifying investigative journey behind the closed doors of a runaway industry across the world--from the UK, Europe and the USA, to China, Argentina, Peru and Mexico. It is both a wake-up call to change our current food production and eating practices and an attempt to find a way to a better farming future" --Page 4 of cover
