Title: Everything I Want To Do Is Illegal
Author: Joel Salatin
Blurb: Drawing upon 40 years experience as an ecological farmer and marketer, Joel Salatin explains with humour and passion why Americans do not have the freedom to choose the food they purchase and eat.
From child labour regulations to food inspection, bureaucrats provide themselves sole discretion over what food is available in the local marketplace. Their system favours industrial, global corporate food systems and discourages community-based food commerce, resulting in homogenized selection, mediocre quality, and exposure to non-organic farming practices. Salatin’s expert insight explains why local food is expensive and difficult to find and will illuminate for the reader a deeper understanding of the industrial food complex.
