Can organic, local food feed us all? Food Truth, an online group dedicated to the real food movement, and Karl Family Farms present Grahamn Merwither's pro-farmer documentary American Meat at the Rosendale Theatre on March 5 at 7pm. Exploring the history of the current industrial production system, the film reveals the feedlots and confinement operations through testimonies of farmers who live and work there. American Meat also focuses on Polyface Farms—first brought to national prominence in Michael Pollan's The Omnivore's Dilemma—where Jeff Salatin and his family have developed an agricultural model of rotational livestock grazing and local distribution. Following the screening, Kris Karl holds a question-and-answer session about sustainability and offers samples from Karl Family Farms. Rosendaletheatre.org
