Industrialized agriculture has become a favored scapegoat of both environmentalists and food system critics, accused variously of depleting and polluting natural resources; perpetuating environmental injustice; and contributing to obesity, foodborne illness, and food security problems. Through case analysis of the website “My American Farm,” this presentation analyzes how U.S. farm organizations are responding to change public awareness of and attitudes toward food production.
