greenhouse spring 2010What is the cost of the industrial farming operations that are going on today? How healthy is the food that you are eating? How are the animals you eat treated? And is there an alternative? These are questions that the documentary FRESH attempts to answer.

FRESH celebrates the farmers, thinkers and business people across America who have witnessed the rapid transformation of our agricultural system into an industrial model. Confronting the consequences, such as food contamination, environmental pollution, depletion of natural resources and morbid obesity, these visionary people are looking to re-inventing our food system and to forge healthier, sustainable alternatives that can offer a practical vision for a future of healthier food and a sustainable planet.
