Sweet mother! Change is happening! This farmer saw the light, “I call it going back to the future because I see a future here.”
You may remember chicken farmer Carole Morison from the documentary Food, Inc. … Well, we thought we’d share this video of Morison from FixFood, a new advocacy site by Food, Inc. director Robert Kenner.
The footage shows Morison in an open-plan chicken house where she and her husband now own the birds themselves (as opposed to working as contract growers for poultry giant Perdue). And the change in Morison’s appearance is almost as striking as the change in the farm. In the documentary she looks frazzled and frustrated as she feeds the birds antibiotics and stoops to remove several chicken carcasses a day from the barn. Here she is clear-eyed and proud — ready to share her new farm with the world.
