Industrialised farming, here I use an over simplified definition, where you have a corporation owning massive large scale farming operations, is not a good idea. A corporation is geared towards profit. Profit first, is never good for us or the planet.
Planet, then people, then profit – that’s the right way to a sustainable future for farming (fishing, lumber, [insert anything you like here…]).
It’s great to see the EU recognising that it’s made mistakes and that they are going to rectify these to help support small scale farming. This will help slow down the decline and loss of these critically important farms and families from our communities.
For more insight, here is a great article form The Guardian.
