I was very disappointed that less than 10 minutes into it a man used a cuss word. It was unnecessary and inappropriate for the moment so I turned it off and will not be able to support the cause since I will not recommend the video to anyone else.

This was very insightful, very informative, eye-opening. Recommend.

I'd have to agree with the sentiment expressed that eating out has been sold as more exciting and better than eating at home. I wonder what the situation is like in Canada, especially now that they're talking about changing the way egg and dairy farmers work through their associated boards simply to maximize free trade potential (especially for oil) and the destruction of the Wheat Board. Farmer's get paid a pittance for a lot of their product, free trade agreements have eroded a lot of their ability to produce (as well as a country's ability to restrict product in times of trouble) and I wish the DVD discussed the realities of farming income in greater detail.
