Want transparency in the food system? How about a dose of democracy?
Then help AFSA publish Farming Democracy: The True Cost of Farming!
Farming Democracy opens the gates, the books, and the hearts of eight small-scale regenerative farmers from across Australia, sharing just how they grow, process, and sell their produce, and how much it costs them to do so as well as how much they earn for their toil.
With stories from Applebox Farm, Bellasato Farm, Caroola Farm, Fat Pig Farm, Jonai Farms, OldMill-Road, Roly Poly Farm, and Woodstock Flour, you'll hear from veg farmers in it for their first year to their 12th, pastured livestock farmers with full or partial value chain control, and the kids of organic grain farmers who are carving out their spot on the farm by milling their own flour and selling it directly. From WA to NSW, Tassie to far north Queensland, this 'underground insurgency' is gaining pace across Australia.
