In this interview New York dairy farmer and independent journalist John Bunting walks us through the history of the ideas, institutions and polices that have systematically destroyed family dairy farms in Vermont. John's holistic and historical analysis demonstrate how policies promoting industrial large scale agriculture, free trade, and economic globalization have marginalized the family farmer and enriched and empowered corporations like Dean Foods enabling them to control 80% of the Northeast Dairy market. His insights map out what led to the current dairy crisis and how we might get out of it for the sake of family farmers, farm workers, and consumers.
