Raising Animals for Food

Date, Location

Panel Discussion

A panel of farmers who raise animals for food will talk about their relationships with their charges, and what it means to care for an animal whose ultimate destination is the plate. They will discuss the farming life and what it means to farm organically/sustainably, how and why they decided to do so, their struggles and motivations, and their views on the future of farming.

Panelists: Norm Carlson, Carlson Farms; Dave Warkentien, Young Earth Farm, Decatur; Tony Kaufman, Lake Village Homestead Farm Cooperative
