'America's Shrinking Farms' Is The Sustainable Food Film Everyone Should Watch Right Now

Take 20 minutes and watch this.

At this point in the American food dialogue, we don't need to tell you that there's something wrong with our current system. You already know. Enough films have been made, enough articles written, enough organizations started to at least bring awareness to food-conscious people. We've learned about the perils of factory farming, despite the fact that we still rely on them. We're educated about the importance of organic farming practices, though we might still opt for conventional produce to save a couple bucks.

That's not what we're going to talk about today. No need to beat a dead horse.

Instead, we are highlighting the flip side of the sustainable food dialogue: the solutions. A new short film by Collectively called America's Shrinking Farms focuses on the latest ideas in food sustainability. We're talking beautiful and innovative vertical farms, cricket flour that makes protein-rich cookies and more. Check it out, the future is here. It's up to you to support it.
