Today’s show will address what the Occupy Wall Street Movement has to do with America’s dairy farmers. Join us for a discussion with chef-fromager Tia Keenan, upstate NY dairy farmer Lorraine Lewandrowski, and Heather Squire, a cook at the Occupy Wall Street People’s Kitchen. Our dairy farmers are part of the 99%! Learn how the consolidation of dairy farms and processing plants combined with lack of transparency at the federal milk pricing level have lead to desperate times in the dairy industry.
Read Tom Philpott’s article ‘Foodies, Get Thee to Occupy Wall Street’ for a primer on the dirty details of America’s big food business.
