Local Food: Not Just for the Wealthy

In between our international videos, we wanted to share a short film we made for a new website (it's a side project of Whole Foods). We loved the family in the video so much that we couldn't not share. This is a backyard farming/chicken story in all its glory. This family isn't raising its own pigs/chickens/goats because it's trendy, but because it makes sense financially and works as an important lesson for kids to learn in raising animals.

WARNING: The video is a bit graphic.
