Documentary takes a fresh look at American farming



Bud Werner Memorial Library, Yampa Valley Sustainability Council and the Community Agriculture Alliance present a free screening of the documentary “At the Fork” with discussion about food production at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, March 23 in Library Hall at Bud Werner Memorial Library, 1289 Lincoln Ave. This is a free community film in honor of Ag Appreciation Week.

Filmmaker and omnivore John Papola, with his vegetarian wife, Lisa Versaci, offer a timely and unbiased look at how farm animals are raised for consumption. With unprecedented access to large-scale conventional farms, Papola asks the tough questions behind every hamburger, glass of milk and baby-back rib. What he discovers are not heartless industrialists, but America’s farmers — real people who, along with him, are grappling with the moral dimensions of farming animals for food.
