September 12, 2009 – “Fresh – The Movie”

Today we went to a screening of “FRESH the movie.” One of the people featured in the movie is long-time friend George Naylor who has been President of the National Family Farm Coalition and was the Iowa farmer featured in Michael Pollan’s #1 selling book, Omnivore’s Dilemma.

The movie highlights some of the dangers, both from an animal husbandry and health perspectives, of confined feeding operations and contrasts them with some farmers doing things a different way.

The movie was hosted at a farm in Greene County. It’s always fun to see other people’s ideas.

This is an old grain bin that has been converted into a pool room. Here’s a view from the outside.

And here’s what it looks like from the outside.

Here’s a cheap gazebo – the top off an old small grain bin, some poles and you’ve got a dry place to stay outside over a fire or cup of tea.
