I moderated a super lively debate at the Food Tank’s first annual summit last month. To start, we talked about just what a family farm is. After all, a huge industrial farm could be owned by one family…And Cargill is privately held, too.) We had an impressive set of panelists including Mark Smallwood of the Rodale Institute, Kathy Ozer, executive director of the National Family Farm Coalition, Chandler Goule of the National Farmers Union, and Eric Hansen of the National Young Farmers Coalition, among others.
It was a huge topic to cover in an hour but we did it. We even managed to (somehow) get intel on who on the panel had tattoos under their suits. You can watch the session here.
