In the post-war years there was a humanitarian desire to feed people effectively and cheaply. But now the insidious creep of industrial agriculture, powered by the remorseless drive to get more for less, has taken hold. Farm animals have slowly disappeared from fields; the countryside is turning to wildlife desert, and mysterious and potentially deadly viruses have entered our food chain.
Farmageddon is a wake-up call to change our current food production and eating practices. Philip Lymbery takes an investigative journey behind the closed doors of a runaway industry and strives to find a way to a better farming future.
