Agriculture articles on homesteading and small scale farming. Organic farming, worm faming, fish farming, food safety, pesticides... Feel free to browse through the agriculture and farming articles here on various topics, some of course controversial like the first article on food safety. However, you may also like to express your own opinion on current farming trends and whether you think there is a lack of conscience by those in the food industry.
We have had BSE and now we have had the China milk scandal of adding melamine to milk. We have had bird flu which had people running scared from poultry and swine flu that had people thinking twice about eating pork products.
While some are concerned about the mercury levels in fish, others are worried about the pesticides and sprays on vegetables and fruit. Basically, people are worried about food safety. So how safe is our food?.
Cancers increase, new cancers and illnesses appear. The bees are disappearing, and so are the ice caps.
Do you have an opinion on where this is all going? Would you like to rant a little? Feel free to do so here, and see what others are saying about the matter and feel free to submit a farming article of your own. See below for details.
