There are farmers preserving local breeds, who care about the well-being of their animals, who take care of the lands they live and work on, who know that behind high-quality food there is good agriculture and animal husbandry practiced with respect.
In the last 70 years, industrial animal farming has threatened their existence, as a production model which pollutes aquifers, depletes the soil, makes animals suffer, reduces biodiversity, wastes large amounts of water, provides low-quality meat, and tears down forests has become dominant. The consequences have been devastating.
This Terra Madre forum gives space to small-scale farmers from around the world to share their experiences, learn, share their vision, and show that a better, more respectful animal farming is possible.
This event is free and open to all: reservation required.
