James Moore speaks with New York Times best-selling author and nationally syndicated radio host and newspaper columnist Jim Hightower who will present his views on “What Will It Take? Taking Back Our Food and Agriculture” at the upcoming Jefferson County Farmers & Neighbors, Inc. Annual Meeting on Wednesday, October 3 at 7:30 pm at the Fairfield Arts & Convention Center.
An outspoken critic of CAFO animal production, Hightower will address what is needed to turn around what many feel is an environmentally destructive, nutritionally compromised system of industrial food production.
