Heis also a filmmaker. He lives on an organic farm and helps his friend run a business in Michigan that’s Michigan’s only “healthy, humane, homegrown farmers market.

Article #7: “Agri-Intellectual Reason (A response to Blake Hurst)”Notes:The author first addresses that the letter that Blake Hurst wrote had a lot of backlash and some other authors took offense.One thing that one author pointed out is that Hurst was undermining the hard work that these industrial farmers put in because of his personal life of being farmer all his life.A lot of consumers today want the way that their food is being raised to match the morals and conditions that are more suitable and tolerable to them. There are local laws and there are animal treatment laws too that make sure that these conditions that our food is being raised is more visible to the public and it allows them to get engaged and voice their opinion if they do not like something.One thing that Blake’s letter had that caused a lot of speculation is a lot of errors about the nature and effectiveness of organic farming and their resultson their effectiveness.
