The Omnivore’s Delusion?

July 31, 2009

There’s a fantastic piece over at The American from a Missouri corn farmer regarding foodie types like Michael Pollan, Eric Schlosser, etc. Mr. Hurst makes some good points, and of course uses the tired ‘feed the world’ argument. My job is not to feed the world, it is to turn rain and sunshine into wealth. I do notice that while ripping on Pollan and the Omnivore’s Dilemma, he doesn’t once mention highly profitable, low input, and zero pollution farmer Joel Salatin, nor does he talk much about subsidies. I would love to see Hurst and Salatin go at it. Heck, I’d pay money to see it.
