  •  Small farms have been under attack, and not just (6+ / 0-)

    from the USDA.  Thank you for raising this important issue.

    Many farms have had no option but to convert to the industrialized models or go under, which necessitates the introduction of chemicals into the US food system, our soil and water.  The results can be seen from space in the dead zones where waterways near industrial farming areas spill into the Gulf of Mexico and the Chesapeake Bay.

    I have had large corporations that want to support sustainable practices tell me that they cannot buy non-GMO soybean oil because its not available on a large scale given that over 90% of US soy is GMO.
