Food autonomy: The right to farm

The documentary "Food autonomy: the right to farm" is currently in development. English closed captions available.

In a legal environment that favours large-scale, industrial farming, it is a genuine challenge for a small-scale, artisanal farm to exist, let alone succeed. As the needs of our food systems become increasingly complex, what can artisanal farming offer to a community? And what is lost if small-scale, diversified farming is forced out of existence by laws that don’t allow it?

In this upcoming documentary, Professor Sarah Berger Richardson, one of Canada’s leading experts in food law and policy, visits artisanal farmers to learn about and explore their quest for legislative changes so that one day they might share the fruits of their labour.
