The time to defend the growing movement of small-scale food producers has come.
Despite growing concerns about the nutrition, safety, and ethics of the food we eat, some regulators are making it harder for Australian small-scale farmers to produce ethical, ecologically-sound, nutritious, and delicious food for their communities.
The issues include: communities who want access to raw milk from local dairies, farms doing on-farm processing facing unfair and inconsistent regulation of their facilities, and many others grappling with outdated and illogical definitions of 'intensive' and 'extensive' livestock in local planning schemes that see a farm with a few hundred chickens out on the paddocks subjected to the same requirements as one with 10,000 birds in sheds.
