Kristin Marie Productions Presents Farmageddon

About the Film

Kristin Canty's son was healed of multiple allergies by farm fresh foods, among them raw milk. When she heard of the armed raids and seizures taking place on family farms she was horrified. And knew she had to do something about it. In this enthralling film, Canty lets the small farmers tell their stories.
